IMF rep wants 'less Irish economics and more Irish literature'

THE IMF's man in Ireland has a simple wish for Christmas this year: he doesn't want to read any more reports from the troika on the state of the Irish economy.

In the Irish Independent's annual survey of what the country's movers and shakers want for themselves and the country this Christmas, IMF official Ajai Chopra, pictured right, tells us that he hopes to "read more Irish literature rather than Irish memoranda of economic and financial policies". And so say all of us.

While most respondents to our light-hearted Christmas survey want Santa to bring a new optimism to Ireland next year, they are divided on what makes a good Christmas present for themselves.
