Slí Eile: 2010 - private banking emerges from the dark world. A slow crash. Now that €3bn+ has been raided from the National Pension Reserve Fund to invest in the 'people's bank' perhaps Government are about to take TASC advice and invest in jobs and people? Here is hoping that 2011 brings fundamental changes in social and economic policy. A peaceful and restful Christmas to all our readers and bloggers!
