psyllium reports. arlene will would itself be quote shackles of the troika on sunday and will wake up on monday as a quote. standing on equal footing a confident claim by prime minister kinney ahead of the country's official exit from its bailout program for eighty five billion euros it cost the irish three years of painful austerity higher taxes slashed minimum wage which has since been raced back high youth unemployment and another wave of irish immigration i'm not sure that the hard ideological divide of austerity which was coming forth from europe was a good one to irish people would be to nice to see the end of the troika to see the opportunity for a street gang or economic sovereignty to be able to make our own decisions in relation to our future the government here is touting the exit from the bailout program as restoring economic and financial freedom but no one here is under any illusion that that exit would also mean an end to hardships or complete release
from austerity now while the idea of possibly having more control over their destiny as a nation is psychologically uplifting people really want is freedom from individual debt that so many here are still heavily burdened with. facing and long term slowdown in our structural growth we still are facing. in other words when you look at the overall economic level of achievement in this bailout it's not really that significant yet at the same time that we should go to the nation to the government to the nation was. calling. in dublin city center sights and sounds of the festive season are present but it rings hollow to lose a feel. kicked to the curb no one would celebrate the banner. be happy were exiting from us will it have any impact on. the budget for this year or

derek in that bank says ireland success sends a positive message to other bailed out countries. finally i hadn't achieved to get out of the hole get back to economic growth and leave the bail out so it's a welcome on the financial markets that's quite an achievement because it showed that through fiscal consolidation it is possible to recover and i think that's a very good example for griese full portugal for cyprus and others the issue basically is how much time do we have when all the economies of greece italy spain portugal sign those growing again if it is going to be one or two years like in ireland it will be very good but if it's going to be ten years it's going to be very low and i'm afraid that many citizens in those countries will look accept this to take you know to this euro zone is going to be a stake nations for ten years to come i think this will have very serious political
consequences now decades after the out of apartheid in south africa there are still plenty of unresolved anger. it's definitely unsafe because if you seen a white person run. as a nation mourns the death of nelson mandela racial tensions are still strong in some places across the country we go to one such area later in the program. what's defines a country's success. faceless figures of economic growth. for a factual standard of living.
