One of my students (an undergraduate here at Maynooth) has a short blog post suggesting that Ireland should implement a policy over the next few years to drop the Euro and instead adopt the British pound sterling as its currency. It is not my proposal so please do not blame me for it, but reading his short blog I cannot figure out where he is wrong. Where are the errors in his analysis?
There is the small problem of you-know-who’s silhouette on the currency. Most Irish people actually seem to like her ok as far as I can tell, but some do not. Perhaps we could make a deal where we can paste over a picture of James Joyce or Bono.
