It is no coincidence that many of today’s basket cases are yesterday’s “miracles”: Ireland, Estonia, Iceland, Latvia

Totally unrelated: there is an advert on RTE radio at the minute for an upcoming James Taylor concert. The voice-over is the sort of testosterone dripping thing you hear on a Jerry Bruckheimer trailer.
