Irish car prices show third biggest drop in Eurozone

The European Commission’s latest car price report shows that real car prices (price change set against inflation) in Ireland fell by 5.7 per cent in 2010. This is the third biggest drop in the Eurozone and well above the -1.5 per cent eurozone average. Car prices fell in almost every EU country in 2010. Taking all EU countries together, the average drop in car prices is 2.5 per cent in real terms in 2010. List prices for new cars also converged slightly. These long-term price trends support the Commission's decision last year that specific competition rules for the sale of new cars are no longer justified.

Relief for risk-takers will come from taking personal responsibility for actions

Apparently what we are seeing now in terms of house repossessions, company bankruptcies and one-time big business honchos being hauled before the courts for bad debts, is only the first wave in what is predicted to be a tsunami of personal financial horror stories. This is because up to now, as bad as things appeared on the outside, ducking and diving have actually been the two main activities keeping people going since the economic crisis began. What this means in real terms is that instead of facing up to debts as soon as they hit, many in trouble adopted the ‘head in the sand’ approach, shoving their problems deep under the rug that time forgot, never to be retrieved again unless under threat of a shotgun to the head.
