Our economic glass is full to overflowing

I read with interest yesterday's Irish Independent editorial, "The economic glass is half full". I must disagree; the glass is full, full to overflowing and this is the root cause of our difficulties.

We no longer need water to be supplied in such quantity and we no longer require nearly as many carriers of the water as previously. Hence they can no longer drink directly from the glass and must join the queue of those who are excluded from access to the water.

They must depend on dribbles from the beleaguered carer of the glass who finds the surplus of water more difficult to manage than the constant struggle previously experienced of keeping the glass anywhere near half full.
