Irish response to crisis will make economy stall - Business News, Business - The Independent
Quote "Economist David McWilliams, who is credited with being the first to predict Ireland's financial problems, said: "For me as an Irish citizen, this is like watching a slow car crash. The more they cut, the more the economy will continue to stagnate. The Irish government seems to think they can emote the economy to life by sloganeering, but people who don't understand economics have taken over."
Sloganeering now theres a word, I think the word lying would have sufficed.
