The toffee-nosed ESRI got it wrong

THE ESRI does not do fairness. If it did, a professor working with the institute would have to pay a property tax bill of €7,908, based on a person on the minimum wage working 39 hours a week and expected to pay €950.

As the institute has a history of calling for policies that hurt the least well off, may I suggest it be renamed to SESRI -- the Snobbish Economic and Social Research Institute.

Furthermore, as the institute has got a raft of its predictions wrong, possibly contributing to the current crisis of bad decisions, it could also use the acronym ACSESRI (pronounced ac ses ri) -- Accelerating Collapses and Snobbish Economic and Social Research Institute.
