I hate it when economists or whoever are on the TV talking about the effects of the recession and they observe from behind their pinstripes that the solution to previous recessions -mass emigration- is no longer available so millions of people are stuck here for the long haul on the dole in a dwindling economy blah blah. These people should be put before the firing squad and shot for spreading defeatism. There must be somewhere better than Ireland to go and languish on the dole. Irish people need help to recover their get-up-and-go spirit, and we need t0 find some dick with a website to facilitate it, quicksmart.

    I mean precisely like those Foreign Policy dicks, but a la irlandaise.

    From the FP article:

    France is also one of the toughest countries on Earth to get laid off in.

    OMG! Sounds like a PD paradise…

    Oh, wait:

    The country requires companies to justify themselves to unions or trade commissions when they feel the need to fire workers to cut costs.

    Somehow I don’t think that the FP quite groks the usual understanding of the phrase “[tough country] to get laid off in”.
