If you hurry, you can read it before I do

I don't normally link to things I haven't gotten around to reading yet but between Michael Lewis's record of sharp insights and fine prose and Felix Salmon's glowing recommendation ("tour de force"), I feel confident that this take on Ireland's crisis will be well worth reading.

  1. Lengthy but worthwhile. It does illustrate how nobdoy is consistent in the stories they tell about bank bailouts (the reasons constantly change are are generally inacurrate). I suspect that this has some lessons for us here in the United States.

    It also makes it pretty clear that austerity can't save the situation . . .
