Hero of the Celtic Tiger and the "Soft Landing" and villain to anyone expecting a fair wage for a hard days work - Dr Dan McLaughlin has been kinda quiet so I went out looking for him.
I found him, the Head of the prestigious Economic Research Unit, BoI Global Markets:
And he's still keeping the Celtic Tiger Flame alive with Quartely Economice Bulletins
Quarterly Economic Outlook
leading with -
July 2010 - "Consumer Spending improving as Recovery Broadens"
"The recession ended last year"
"Deflation Trend may be over"
& my own favorite
"Core deficit may undershoot target"
Now I know you think I'm being harsh, Dr Dan doesn't have a crystal ball or anything, maybe he got somethings wrong
Lets have a look at his latest Opus -
"Annual Inflation Turns Positive"
"Unemployment may be at or near peak"
"Budget Remains on Target"
& "Fully funded into 2011" !!!!!!

Thanks Dr Dan, for bringing mirth and laughter into our bleak lives.
