In this one-hour documentary, RTE Economics Editor George Lee travels the country meeting experts and those who are affected by the recession and asks overtly ponderous questions like: how have we gone from boom to bust? What lessons can we learn? And where do we go from here? And why does the news keeping ramming the recession down our throats, when everyone is already panicking? Okay, we made the last one up. Three years ago the then Minister for Finance, Brian Cowen, announced a €9 billion surplus in his budget speech. He promised to use the riches of the boom to create a fairer and more equitable Ireland. It's pretty obvious that that promise hasn't happened, and Lee talks to analysts and experts who offer their opinions as to why, and how Ireland can brush itself off and ride another bubble. Put everything on black and cross our fingers?
