Ireland: Lean times for the Celtic Tiger?


The Irish economy used to be the envy of Europe, but the Celtic Tiger has lost its roar and workers are losing their jobs.Most careers went suddenly from boom to bust. The fear that the economy in Ireland could crash as spectacularly as it did in Iceland has given rise to the following joke , as reported by BBC : "what is the difference between Ireland and Iceland? One letter and six months.."
Like most humor, the joke contains a handful of exaggeration...
