Kilkenomics attracts top global talent – but joke will be on us if new road ruins the party
THE other day, I got some good news.
The Financial Times, the world’s preeminent economics newspaper and the most credible financial publication, which is read by the world’s most influential decision makers, wants to be the global media partner for a small economics festival in Kilkenny.
This means that the eyes of the world will be on Kilkenny. Some of the most influential writers and columnists in the world of business will be writing from the city and the festival in the first week of November. For the festival it is a great development, because we aim to give it global flavour while keeping it in a local setting.
