  1. How appropriate for it to be held in a venue currently being sold by a receiver! A wonderful metaphor for the Irish economy.

  2. We await, with breath abated, the momentous results.

    Will they have any impact at all?
    Should we keep economists as pets, since they don’t know a depression when they see one coming?
    Bet there will be no papers on the derivatives crash of ’09?

    One of the results of all this endeavour? The economy will continue to deflate……

  3. The Blarney conference? A marvellous metaphor,just turn left at the rainbow to find the crock of gold! Latest Data seems to suggest that Obamas optimism might be a little tinged,oops
