On Wednesday 18th of November the senior economic and business students had a talk from speaker- John Murray.
John is a business journalist and hosts Morning Ireland and the Business Program on RTE Radio on Saturday mornings. He was also media adviser to Mary Harney who was leader of the PD’s.
It was a very informative talk on the present economic climate. Followed by a vibrant question and answer session which was enjoyed by all present. The students posed some very interesting questions for discussion.
Topics covered included: recession, causes and remedies, NAMA and its merits, benefits and challenges of increasing taxes. public versus private sector employment to name a few.
Thank you to John Murray for his time.
