Economic 'tools'

• In the Irish Independent of June 6, David McWilliams writes: "Those like me and many other economists (who) see money as a 'tool' used to push economies in certain directions . . ."

Perhaps he should go on to consider how this (simplistic) theory or 'moral worldview' performed in practice here from 2004 up to and including -- and this is a hint -- the arrival of the troika and the collapse of the then government?
