McWilliams's analysis beats Dalai Nama's

This morning, I intend to go into town to buy three picture frames. Into them will go two of the most sensible articles I have read in a long time, and one that, sadly, illustrates everything that is wrong with this country.

All of these items were published in Saturday's Irish Independent. The two I awarded accolades were 'If I Were Taoiseach...' by David McWilliams and 'NAMA the Solution?' by Bruce Arnold, both produced by brilliant analytical minds.

As a stark contrast, there was an essay by the Dalai Nama himself, Finance Minister Brian Lenihan, entitled 'Rising Export Sector Will Lead Recovery of Ireland's Economy', a piece full of the usual waffle, bull, mangled statistics and wishful thinking to which we have become accustomed from our present Government.
