    This is good news for the US, too.

    Some more good news, from the coal country. Put a lump of (US) coal in your investment stocking:

    “Here’s some good news from across the pond that a lot of Americans will like. Ireland is once again preparing to return international debt markets for the first time since 2010.”

    YES! Hallelujah! Many millions of Americans have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to once again buy Irish bonds! 🙂

    I’ll say. The US is switching from coal to cleaner gas, but those nice Europeans are helping the American coal industry by buying ever more of the stuff. Less pollution in America, “subsidized” by more of it in Europe. Talk about special providence!

    As a wise but very not nice European said, “There is a special providence for drunkards, fools, and the United States of America.”

    @thibaud-

    I didn’t know WRM was European, I thought he was from glamorous Queens. And you’re being a little harsh with him, calling him “not very nice.”
