Today With Sean O Rourke Wednesday 4 September 2013
New Editor of the Irish Independent
It is the era of the online...and as news and information increasingly are increasingly read off the screen rather than the page, the great age of the newspaper looks to be coming to an end.
With that in mind, you may well ask, who’d be a newspaper editor?
It’s a question for Clare Grady, the recently appointed new editor of The Irish Independent who joined Sean in studio.
The Default Line: The Inside Story of People, Banks and Entire Nations on the Edge
By Faisal Islam (Head of Zeus)
While our own mortgage crisis shows no sign of abating, according to my next guest, Britain's housing market is still dangerously dysfunctional...
In his new book, The Default Line, he traces the origins of the British housing bubble and argues that an entire generation are paying absurd prices for a basic human need - and it doesn't have to be this way.
With a commentary that says as much about the property bubble here in Ireland as it does about the United Kingdom, Channel 4’s Economics Editor Faisal Islam joined Sean from London.
