    Huge personal debt? It's reducing.
    Interest rate rising... in the long term.. maybe
    Rising house prices... property tax will act as a self regulatory control to some degree. This wasn't there before.
    Falling birth rate? Really? Where? Wasn't last year a baby boom year?
    Screwed credit rating? Huh?

    SIL. The personal debt has gone down.

    Yes. Interest rates will go up.

    House prices will rise.

    The birth rate is rising fast and the only people who have any money are the elderly and they are going to die.

    I know nothing about credit ratings!!

    Especially paid fine gael spinners and their pathetic attempts to talk up some tiny improvements ,lets just remind the idiots , the present rate of job growth will bring us back to 2007 employment levels by 2037 , even with emigration on a level not seen since the 50s .

    Reducing at what rate and from what levels?
    Property tax a regulator? Lol
    Yep, falling birth rate.
    Credit rating - people can't borrow to spend or invest

    RTÉ Mobile - Ireland's birth rate continues to decline - ESRI


    Yesterday's figures showed another substantial drop in the birth rate. As recently as 2008, almost 17 children were born for every 1,000 people living in the country. Now, there are fewer than 15 newborns per 1,000 people. That may seem small, but in demographic terms it is a big and rapid change. - See more at: Concerns for recovery as jobs growth slowed to snail's pace in first half of year - Independent.ie

    Don't worry about it. Just play the long game and gun for stable and sustainable growth. That means balancing the books and trying to focus on productive investments in the right kinds of capital good, skills and marketing. Don't worry about house prices or rents either- just help supply catch up with demand and keep a close eye out for the time when demand begins to shift from end-use to speculative. But for me the big one is investment in the right kind of factors.

    The supercilious trio have to somehow prove their worth to God knows who but as I write there is a PBS documentary about Iraq on the box and perhaps the most telling image is of Donald Rumsfeld blithely assuring all was good in the country while in reality chaos reigned, how reminiscent of the shils on here I thought.
