I observed its progress with fear and foreboding, to the extent of rescuing a friend of mine in the West of Ireland from its trap. In 2007, he was about to borrow €2m to invest in his business, until I outlined the financial events about to unfold.

In 2007, the finances of the Irish government were in a sound condition; they were warned by international wealth management institutions of the impending financial implosion in some Irish financial institutions; the government choose to ignore the warning.
