Eurointelligence: Aftermath of a "surreal" summit
Karl Whelan on another gap for Ireland

In a very interesting post on the Irish economy blog, Karl Whelan calculated that the EU/IMF package is still some €11.5bn short and will not fund Ireland through the 2011-13 period. He asks that the political parties should address the issue of whether they are want to ask the EU/IMF for more funds, and in particular given some additional spending commitments on windmills and broadband systems, whether they want to ask for even larger loans to cover those commitments as well.
