Clinton: 'Nuts' not to invest in Ireland

Addressing the forum, Bill Clinton has told a gathering of U.S. investors that it is ‘nuts’ for major corporations not to take advantage of this 'unique time' to invest in Ireland.

In his opening address Bill Clinton insisted Ireland was a great place to do business:

"Now is the time to invest in Ireland where property is relatively a steal. You have the best educated workforce in the world and a lot of people all dressed up and no place to go. It is a huge opportunity"
