I have begun to realise there is probably little point in writing to newspapers regarding the impact of technology on the whole economic scene.

Seven years ago, I began to draw attention to the possibility of technology being the overwhelming influence on economic turmoil in the 21st century and the Irish Independent had the courage and commitment to freedom of speech to allow this divergent opinion be heard.

I consider newspapers the best and only avenue for a nonentity to express an argument which apparently terrorises the political and economic establishment to such a degree that they are unable to challenge the logic and their only defence is to ignore the argument being made.
