Podcast time. As economies recovery what’s the story with inflation? If inflation returns, all bets are off. If not, we’re heading into a fascinating decade! https://t.co/rEYTjpOswn

Have a read of this and retweet. It’s precisely what #HousingForAll declared it would stop. Maybe a good test case in @DarraghOBrienTD back yard. https://t.co/BdJ8F5OWJp

Where are the normal people? Blame elite over-production https://t.co/vKVgK6oRCp

Podcast time. Thoughts while mooching around the Creek in Dubai, plus the problem of elite over-production and how it helps explain lots, from the anti-Sally Rooney brigade amongst reviewers, to new cross-class populism & political coalitions! Enjoy. https://t.co/tYdWVznz7A

For anyone who’s ever got the Dart, here’s wonderfully evocative exhibition ⁦@dlrLexIcon⁩ by the talented Mr Gary Coyle. Pop in before exhibition closes on Sept 26th.

A few thoughts on the link between Normal People, the Leaving Cert, grind schools and fragile support for centrist governments everywhere 😉 https://t.co/Z3yfquKAWX

Wow, this is the capital city of Ireland One of the richest more developed countries We really have normalised dereliction in our country & we have a fucked up way of managing our resources & urban environment Never mind how we treat our people This really is #DerelictIreland https://t.co/D2284ZdFZc

@stephenkinsella @Antcon7062 @davidmcw has given the concept his inimitable treatment when he describes turbo-charged Nimbys as ‘Bananas’ - build absolutely nothing anywhere near anything. That’s vetocracy in action.

Best take on the current levels of inflation I've heard. Supply is still a bit away from recovering after reopening with huge bottlenecks everywhere. Raising interest rates won't fix these issues, they will correct over over time @davidmcw https://t.co/9cGlN8PJB8

@RiochtConor2 Reminds me of the economic crisis. The bank regulators saying everything was fine but a few economists like @davidmcw and @GeorgeLeeRTE knew the banks and economy were in big trouble. The people who have campaigned for antigen tests will be proved right in time.

Never occurred to me in this way, but this is actually at the route of many of Ireland’s issues. Everyone wanting to be “elite” Whatever elite is. Really interesting view and while we have to be careful of our biases, it does answer a lot of questions around housing,education etc https://t.co/slCS90zY1O

“The thing about a meritocratic elite is they never understand the role of luck in success, and one thing I am completely convinced of is that luck plays a huge part in everybody’s life.” - @DavidMcW 🍀👏🍀 https://t.co/caZlSr9i9m

@joelymack You are so right & it will get worse over the next few years. Coincidentally I listened to two really interesting podcasts about similar issues in Ireland and US. @davidmcw has been hammering this issue for a long time and suggesting innovative solutions.https://t.co/eUhdLwVZH2

Same street, six years apart. Parking became a park, grey became green. Just imagine what it is like to open your house door and see this. Blankenstraat, 2015-2021, via @gdewith

David McWilliams talks about prediction of the future by talking about thousands of years of Indian economic power. And how to make a secondary market in snakes during the British Empire @davidmcw @DubaiIBN #uae #irish #businessnetworking #futurology

Something I forgot to mention on my podcast on the @davidmcw show…they even got rid of Duolingo! That harmless little green owl that tries to teach you other languages (not vey effectively.) Another cracker of a piece from the excellent Lily Kuo. https://t.co/4YHPr2ZPEM

Forty years ago today, Christy Brown died at the age of 49. He was the author of four novels, and three collections of poetry. Here is a thread on Brown, and what his work has meant to me as a disabled writer.

The whole world needs to listen to @davidmcw talk about the situation in China. Frightening. All while the Irish govt are doing nothing to repatriate Richard O'Halloran? https://t.co/EeQkdZsASp

Fascinating developments in China that could lead to huge geopolitical and economic consequences for us all discussed by @davidmcw and @John_davis_ie this morning. https://t.co/oAfpHVhoXV
