“Calm Down Dear, it’s only a recession…”

Tomorrow Slugger will be hosting a live podcast on the Republic’s economy; particularly in light of the announcement of nationalisation of the Anglo Irish Bank tonight. Joining us will be Gerard O’Neill of Turbulence Ahead; Stephen Kinsella of his own eponymous blog; and Michael Taft of Notes on the Front who will hopefully help us tear at the problem from different angles. As Michel de Montaigne once said:

Of the hundred parts and aspects that a thing has, I take one, sometimes merely licking it, sometimes scraping its surface, and sometimes pinching it to the bone. I stab it as deeply, but not as widely as I can; and I generally like to seize it from some unaccustomed viewpoint.

Well, there’ll be four of us taking various stabs in the dark (with myself, I suspect, most of all). But it should be crack! Join us live at 11 am this morning, if you can… Or grab the podcast later…
