not disputing it.
but this pales into insignificance when taken against the cost of supporting the people who would otherwise be unemployed, not to mention the knock-on benefits to the country of havin so many wage-earners in the economy.
i didn't mention the investment in ireland at all, althought that too is significant.
i also mentioned that the low corpo tax is a pull, that was the point?
overall, the point was that we are better off for having these firms, and will miss them when the go to the eastern european states or india for lower wages.
don't consider myself 'nave'. but it's not a simple case of them coming over here rippin us off. we get a lot out of it too.
