Here, on the Wall government's insistence that public-sector cuts are the answer no matter what the question - and the cautionary tale we should draw from their Irish model.

For further reading...
- The CP documents Wall's latest demand for austerity at any price.
- Paul Krugman has done plenty of work showing where Ireland has gone wrong in both its initial economic model and its subsequent austerity program. See posts here, and especially here among others.
- And for more on the IMF's admonition that governments not engage in gratuitous cuts if they can afford not to, see the BBC and Stephen Gordon.
