You don't say?

Sunday Times on Irish bank economists:
But public debate was dominated by stockbrokers and bank economists, the likes of Dan McLaughlin of Bank of Ireland (whose views are no longer in as much demand since the banking crisis).

Finfacts has more on McLaughlin's contribution to the property bubble.

And for an example of McLaughlin's other engagements in 'public debate', see this extraordinary segment featuring a discussion of the Irish Ferries dispute on Question And Answers in 2005.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.

    (This blog and its contents reflect only my own personal opinions as a private citizen, and not those of any other person or organisation.)
