Irish Elections

Yesterday Ireland held elections; Fianna Fail (FF) lost to Fine Gael & Labour (FGL). When the Irish economy tanked in ‘08 FF had the government guarantee all bad bank debt; a dreadful decision resulting in a $93 billion bailout and a painful austerity program. FGL promises to renegotiate it all. This may cause a Euro crisis like the one last spring which hurt US growth and added to stability.
