Gerard O'Regan: Mr Know All peddles his quick-fix economic solutions, unburdened by any self-doubt

Let us call him Mr Norbert Know All, the man who in his private moments admits he has a few "nice little earners'' on the go, by dispensing his thoughts on how our gloom-sodden country can get itself back on track.

Basically, Norb as he is known to his friends, peddles consolation to the beleaguered masses in these tough times. His main allure is persuading people that life's most complicated problems can be resolved with easy and painless solutions. If only others could predict, and be as certain about the future as he is, our traumas with so-called austerity and the mountain of debt that threatens to swamp us all would soon pass.
