Economy bad but we found a great waffle place

See: Ireland and Italy least competitive of EU states.

The 2009 European Growth and Jobs Indicator due to be published today shows Ireland has slipped from fourth to 13th place in a single year. It notes that economic growth, productivity and the public finances have all “deteriorated precipitously”, driving the country’s overall score downwards below every EU country surveyed, bar Italy.
Just more bad news, but it gives you an idea of what's going on here.

On the positive side, there are lots of indicators where I'd like to be next to Italy: The 2009 Espresso Quality Indicator, The 2009 Neopolitan Pizza Deliciousness Indicator and The 2009 Cities like Florence because Florence is so cool Indicator to name a few. On the negative side, Dublin wouldn't rate too highly on these indexes either.

But we're always top of the Craic Indicator, so who cares.
