50,000 march in Dublin against Irish austerity plan
Ireland: rain coming (The Burren, view of Galway Bay, October 2010) - click on image to view larger
Economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman has just given the Irish an early Christmas present, some badly needed cheer and praise for a population that doesn’t deserve to be mired down in its current mess.
Meanwhile, 50,000 people took to the streets in Dublin to protest against austerity cuts Saturday 27 November. Krugman likely has some fans in the crowd.
I wish he could come up with a Christmas miracle for them now.
A great read: “Eating the Irish”, NY Times
