Open thread: your questions for FG economics frontbenchers

Fine Gael this morning announces launch of their 2011 election campaign (for Dáil elections likely the last Friday of March) with a new website.   I’ll be at the Dáil tomorrow to interview two of their economic team, Deputies Brian Hayes and Richard Bruton.  I’ll after be talking to Professors John O’Hagan and Brian Lucey, both economists at TCD.

If readers might have questions for them, please share them in comments, and I’ll be sure to pose them and post the replies.  My interview will principally revolve around how we might expect an FG-Labour economic policy to differ from that which is in place at the moment.
