Ireland may have broken free from austerity monitoring, but it is still very much in major austerity. Only recently in the Irish Times an article appears mentioning that Health chiefs warn €1 billion in cuts needed.http://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/h ... -1.1566060
Regardless, is the Irish economy really on the mend?
Cuts ... cuts ... cuts. What needs cutting is the grip of the World Bank and the IMF.
Abolish private banking and their control of the money supply ... the core of the problem.
Finally, one country's economic success is usually at the expense of another country. Co-operation not competition.
