Exiting the bailout

Fri, Dec 20, 2013, 01:09

Sir, – The estimated Government debt at the end of 2013 is €206,000,000,000 (Business, December 13th). The population of the Republic is 4,800,000. If my arithmetic is right that amounts to €42,917 for each citizen.

Would somebody please explain to me who is exiting the bailout? – Yours, etc,

NEIL V BUCKLEY,
