There is no greater challenge facing Ireland than getting our people back to work. There have been over 300,000 job losses since a flawed economic model collapsed in 2008 . . .
‘These are not my words, but those of the Government in the Executive Summary to their 2012 Action Plan for Jobs.
It is the ‘flawed economic model’ that intrigues me. Have I just awoken from a Rip van Winkle somnolent state?
When I went to sleep we worshipped at the great god capitalism. Has something changed? Pray tell, what is the ‘new improved’ model replacing the old flawed one?
If I was one of the 315,000 people unemployed (statistics from the same Executive Summary), I would be seriously concerned.
Oh, wait, I have just woken up. I AM one of them.
