I mourn the passing of James Downey; his integrity, insight and commitment to journalism has been ably lauded by the highest in the land.
I was an ardent reader of his thought-provoking columns and his inherent wisdom, but have a much more personal reason for holding him in special esteem.
I have written to this newspaper and others for many years suggesting the economic upheaval we suffer in the 21st century is due to much greater forces than 'recession'.
