I knew that our world was going to end last week. No, not when Italian bond rates breached 7 per cent. Nor when Berlusconi threw in the towel. Not even when it emerged that Merkel and Sarkozy were plotting a new europe.

Normally I would head for the Oireachtas Library where the voice of the free markets often remains untouched despite the global crisis.
