Thread: Ireland top spot for FDI Jobs

  1. #1

    Default Ireland top spot for FDI Jobs

    Ireland top spot for inward investment jobs - RT News

    IBM Global trends report has identified Ireland as #1 destination for FDI Jobs.

    This is good news as clearly business friendly policies ensure FDI remains a viable opportunity for longer term employment.

    So this is what the resident FF spin machine has been downsized to. The words "scraping" and "barrel" spring to mind. How many do FDI's employ? 100,000? That is not even 5% of the workforce.

    We have 750,000 people either unemployed or underemployed and only 20% of the economy is now in agriculture and industry from over 50%, 40 years ago. Progress for a large island rich in resources?

    Its funny that Norway, Australia, Canada or Switzerland are not concerned about this thing called a "smart economy". Why is that? Oh yes they are rich in resources too, but they are independent countries, with independent currencies, have a very excellent social structure, full employment and above all democracy (in particular direct democracy in Switzerland). They don't need foreign direct investment. They work for themselves and don't live under a dictatorship like we do.

    Didn't IBM just move jobs out of Ireland?

    There are genuine good news stories out there such as people getting back into agriculture and horticulture. Self employment will also increase as people wean themselves of Statism. Bit by bit we will get there.

    Unfortunately we have lost a lot of the traditional manufacturing sector and the crafts people that went with that. We also lost a lot of people that emigrated.

    We forget how low the density of population is in this country. We had 7 million or more before the famine. If we hadn't have suffered this holocaust and had the industrial revolutions like the other countries we would be up there with Switzerland and the US who never had a setback of being bombed during the two world wars.

    The only industry that really matters, in this country, is securing employment for village idiots. The governments no. 1 employment priority.

    Turnover is vanity, profit is sanity. Having the most companies is easy if you are operating as a tax-free banana republic and facilitating legal scams to help companies avoid tax elsewhere.

    We recite the names of the companies here as if it proves we are high-tech. In fact we are just low-rent. Of course the jobs are great while they last but they reflect badly on us. They demonstrate our absence of self-respect as a state. Cute-hoordom at an international level.

    Where's our fishing industry? Why have we let costs destroy Tourism? Why do we import carrots.

    We need a re-think so that when the EU and the US pull the plug on our scheme it doesn't come as such a shock.

    I would bet it is the number 1 destination. Nothing like some of that double Irish.
