Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I see that several of the "mixed reviews" suggested exiting the Euro and at least one hit on the interdependence of the debt, with the implication that Ireland could get a much better deal by threatening to blow up the whole euro system. Among the comments to the O'Hagen piece I was amused by the one that noted that octopi have a high level of cognitive functioning and have demonstrated the ability to learn from experience, which distinguishes them from most academic economists.
