I wish boys would go out and do a bit of work instead of sitting in the pub giving out about it

Looks like a bumpy road ahead, may delay returning home for a few years and stay put.

ESRI reports have gone from holding to reduced growth to soft landing to zero growth to recession in less than twelve months. I'm telling yiz now the next one will be crash and after that man the lifeboats.

I have lost count of the number of seminars I attended this time last year, at which the Chief Economists from the leading Banks in Ireland all warned of slight drops in house prices etc, and rapid falls in interest rates within 12 months (remember there had been a couple of rises this time last year) but there was nothing to worry about over all.

In short I take all predictions and economic reports from the high and mighty with a large pinch of saxa.

Yeah folks, but the signs were there for all to see, for a considerable time, that there wouldn't be a 'soft landing' or a 'correction'.  These economist lads like nothing better than a big news story, to get their ugly gubs on the news - God be with the days when economists stayed hidden in their libraries.

I have been living in recession for ages. The cost of living has been going up much faster than my wages for years. The only problem (if it even is a problem) is it won't be as easy to borrow. Then again anyone who has borrowed big (with all the promise of a great economy) could in trouble.

Its inevitable but I hope we can ride it out. I remember the bad old days in England when the keys of the house got thrown into the building society and walked away. Would hate to see that happen.
