    Can you not get some heavy-weights from Industry and Academia – who wants to hear more about the property juggernaut.

  2. Materialisim is all about what I can have now, not in 10 years time 2016.

    There is nothing new about boom to bust, its been done before in more developed economies.
    At the end of the day we are dealing with human narure, except there are many varying degrees of want.
    The USA is a prime example of lets have it all to day, because we are easy driven in the keep up with the jones’s society, the Irish are no different.
    We may well have a Polish Taoiseach in the future,
    Can you remember when you were a teenager, did you worry about the future, I doubt it and neither did I.
    What is of more immediate concern to all of us( 40 plus teenagers, I am 64) right now is, will the USA economy go belly up at any stage in the future, because if it does, we are then really in deep trouble from a number positions, least of all, exports and employment.
    Enjoy the debate.
