    A really important book that even the most seasoned observer of Irish corruption incompetence and subservience will have something to learn fromFor example I learned that Uganda gets a better deal from Oil companies than Ireland which didn't surprise me all that much but the kicker was that they did this after getting a report that was paid for by the Irish government that urged them to follow the Norwegian modelNorway hovers over this book like some parallel universe version of Ireland where the government had the courage to negotiate a good deal from the Oil Corporations that allowed them to create a fund to benefit everyone in the country virtually the exact opposite of what our government in the form of the lying venal corrupt Ray Burke did We learn how this was part of a pattern of Irish subservience which continues in the form of the bank bailout which also was accepted without protest at the time with the compliance of a media that was largely owned by one of the same people as the oilfields The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it's written in the form of essays often by specialists in certain fields geological legal economic etc that don't always make enough concessions to the ordinary readerOn the other hand there are a couple of articulate essays by 14 year olds that should give people hope for the future and a fairly funny account of a film maker's trip to Oslo Definitely read it even if like me you have to skim through certain sections
