We need action -- right now

DOES anybody else think that Mr Cowen and his ministers are like the proverbial ostriches with their heads buried in the sand regarding the economy?

Can any economist tell me, in plain English, how rising mortgage rates, proposed higher insurance premiums (due to the Quinn group's dilemma), higher grocery bills if the Government moves to give supermarket suppliers more power, and still exorbitant electricity and gas and fuel prices can help get us out of recession?

Having less money in our pockets -- does that not lead to less being spent in the local economy?
