Mr. Italo’s daughter lives in Ireland. During her latest visit home for the holidays a couple weeks ago, I had the chance to speak with her about why she loves living there so much. She says that the genuineness and authenticity of the people, as well as a human scale for everything, makes living in Ireland a very different and pleasurable experience vs. any other Western country.

Courtesy of Mr. Dario, this YouTube video of an Irish gentleman assessing the current economic crisis in that country as well as the rest of the world, is a wonderfully succinct example of that authenticity.
