Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have markedly less sympathy for the Irish "tax competition" strategy than you appear to have. But it is rather rich to hear from a German that the Irish are collectively responsible for their irresponsible macroeconomic policy... when Germany has practised the even more irresponsible macroeconomic policy of wage competition.

A country that passed Hartz IV really has no business whatsoever lecturing others on macroeconomic policy.
