  1. Rather spiffy clientele…

    I’m very pleased for one of my very good clients, David McWilliams, who has just recently been selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. The only Paddy on the list!
    I’ve been involved in the McWilliams web project since it’s sta…

    David & Groupies:

    What am I to make of such balderdash as “multi-stakeholder”, “unique”, “time and energy”. It sounds like an amalgamation of humdrum bureaucratize and a solicitation for Florida underwater real estate property (which in current Irishese would be a hot property solicitation for some Middle East Potamkin Village shortly to be cleansed of the Infidels).

    Congratulations on your appointment to such an august body.


  4. Tomas Levinsky

    Was your selection because of
    a. Your incorrect call on the Irish property market for eight straight years in a row.
    b. Your incorrect call on oil prices which have been falling since last summer
    c. Your incorrect call about the Americans keeping Sadam alive.
    d. Everyone on this forum of Young Global Leaders talks as much rubbish as you do.
    e. a combination of the above?

  5. Of course, it was because Gavin, my son and heir, was on the panel who picked these fine Young Global Leaders

    Another neo-con in the making …

    zippidy-doo-dah! Another semi-operational mind lost to the great mammon ..

    congratulations on your achievement to New Global Leader.Just looking at the age ceiling which is 40 or under, which reminded me of your SBP article some time ago that 40 is the new 21!
    Keep up the good work and hope to see you soon in SBP as you have been missed this last few weeks.
    Enjoy Dublin v Tyrone. What about that as a social phenomenon? Night time economy Croker style!
    Up the Celts !

    Hmmm, perhaps the site needs yet another re-think now that we have a world leader on the banner! Onwards and upwards David. Well done, sir!


  9. [...] The frequency with which David McWilliams has switched occupations during his career would worry most potential employers.  Not quite forty, he’s been at various times an investment banker, morning show radio guy, government advisor, book author, cabaret host (part time) and now a Young Global Leader of the World  (a full time job, we assume).

    Congrats David. Hope you can make a difference and that this is the start of the recognition you deserve.

  14. Hello David My name is John and am slightly worried about world economy. In the US this morning a baby born will owe the fed $99,000 Thousand we in Ireland a baby born at Rotunda will owe Berty 2000 euro. National debt in US of A is approximately 10 – 37 Trillion Dollars depending on what article I read. If and when China and Japan dump $ bonds (yes dump) the US is up the creek. Over last 18 months the $ has decreased in value against the Euro and Sterling by 37%. With their little problem of home ownership really only starting the decline of America as the minder of the worlds currency. I purchased gold 5 weeks ago at $645 to days price £718. Why o why do dear old Ireland stick to equities when fortunes can be made in commodities Gold down to lettuce plants. with the demand from India and China , this time next year oil will be $145 barrel The country that is manufacturing is where to invest. When General Motors or Ford make a car in US they lose $143 on each car so cheaper to import. I like your articles David ,the recession in a sense will be worse that 1929

  15. Hi David John Watson I last reported September 18th 2007 Gold $747 per oz today 28 Nov gold up to $841 per oz I will report again when gold reaches $1000 per oz then again at $1500 per oz. The same trading example happened mid 80s gold purchased at $400 per oz sold at $ 800 per oz. Gold peaked at $950 per oz, but do not get selfish, you can still invest in the precious metal and get 100% return. Since the Roman Empire gold coins were minted and was a currency. Nothing has changed as long as th $ dollar is in trouble gold is the currency, forget your ISEQ and Ftse. equity stocks get into commodities immediately Gold and gold mining stocks will rise and rise. Watch silver as well?

  16. Hi Folks, I would like you to think of the American economy, over the weekend, as it is in bad shape I reported on this site September 18 that trouble was very close, my American investor manager and bank manager friends know that the US is in recession, but the White House believes they can go and spend, this time they cannot spend their way through the drop of the dollar losing 37% value over the last last 3 months. the US national dept is 52 trillion up to 76 trillion dollars whichever honest American Investment site you visit. I would love to be wrong, as I still have very lovely American friends who are so worried with the huge increase in mortgages, supermarket shopping and petrol just over $ 5 per gallon. For every 1 shipload the US export, 7 ships are waiting to unload in America for the consumer market. I would love to hear comments on this dated 30th November 2007

    Kind Regards

    John Watson

    Hello, you have on your search?
    A very uncomfortable all the time to search for information manually.

    Many ppls do not do this anymore because they don’t think it’s worth the time.Grinding is still the best method of farming gold because it’s so simple and basic.
    If you are a new player, or on a lower level character you are going to want to stick to killing humanoids, unless you are a skinner. Humanoids drop both cloth and coin which is a large portion of your money, and they also have the highest drop percentage for green’s and blues (generally speaking).
    Now if you are a higher level a few things you will need to target is motes, think items and vanity items. The first two are fairly obvious on where to farm them, so I’m not going to go into detail.
    But vanity items raise a good question with most ppls.
    These are simple to farm or obtain but most players don’t even know they exist! These gamers may even have a few in their inventory and they wont make gold they SHOULD!
    Vanity items are those items that only make the characters look pretty. They have no other purpose at all.
    These range from foods or drinks that alter characters effect, to clothing that makes a character look like afisherman or a ninja!
    This also includes pets that players don’t know about. Ppls love collecting things. Buying pets and reselling them can make you a lot of gold for this exact reason. In fact theres a few pets that sell for hundreds of gold because they are a rare drop.
    Now some of these items are difficult to find (That’s why they make you so much money). But once you find these locations, they bring in money like it’s clockwork!
    It could take you a very long time to gather these spots because 99% of the ppls don’t know they exist.
    To be completely honest with you, I would have never thought of these spots if it wasn’t for Derek. He showed me all of these Wow tips for money, spots and he has assisted me use these spots efficiently.
    I had his help long before his guide came out, and I was lucky to do that. You don’t get the opportunity to speak to gamers that are as busy as he is so often. But his guide is still available at http://warcraftriches.goldlevelingguide.com/ .

    Привет всем!?
    Буду на днях в столице, может быть кто посоветует где возможно информацию посмотреть про досуг в столице. Возможно кто пользовался уже каким-либоотдыхом, хотелось бы в приятное место прийти, расслабиться так сказать по полной. Интересуют разные развлечения и моральные ну и физические тоже. А то просто не хочется потом огорчаться, если не оправдает досуг моих надежд.

    Hi. I repeatedly scan this forum. This is the oldest culture undisputed to ask a ridiculous.
    How multifarious in this forum are references Nautical port behind, artful users?
    Can I depute all the communication that there is?

    There are 5 houses in five different colors
    In each house lives a different nationality.
    These 5 owners drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
    No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

    The CLUES:

    The Brit lives in the Red house.
    The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
    The Dane Drinks tea.
    The Green House is on the left of the White House.
    The Green House’s owner drinks coffee.
    The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
    The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
    The man in the center house drinks milk.
    The Norwegian lives in the first house.
    The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats
    The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
    The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
    The German smokes Prince.
    The Norwegian lives next to the Blue House.
    The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.

    Who owns the fish?
