 Synopsis 

The most spectacular bust of the global financial crisis was not the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers or the near-collapse of AIG but the demise of the entire economy of Ireland. Ship of Fools, a gripping financial morality tale, is both an illuminating analysis of the habits of the last decade and a warning for all time.

 Synopsis

 Synopsis

by Dave Hannigan

In June 1919 Eamon de Valera stowed away on a liner bound for New York and walked into the Waldorf-Astoria using the title ‘President of Ireland’. He spent eighteen months billeted in the most expensive hotel in the world. From this luxurious base, de Valera criss-crossed America by plane, boat and train throughout 1919 and 1920, publicising his nation’s plight and raising more than $5 million for the cause of Irish independence.
