David McWilliams: Auf Wiedersehen? Never

"In fact, our 15 years’ experience with the euro have been 15 years of massive economic instability. It has been a chaotic period of seven years of unsustainable boom, followed by a year of meltdown and then seven more years of recession, unemployment, emigration and public service cutbacks.

The only reason the economy is growing strongly now is because England and America – our major trading partners – are growing strongly. When you hear politicians talking about the Irish economy, and saying we are the fastest growing economy in Europe, it is meaningless, because we aren’t a European economy at all. We are an Anglo/American economy, with a European exchange somehow grafted onto us."
