Stephen Kinsella: A tale of two prodigals
We shamed ourselves by heaping scorn on Greek politicians who were trying to do their best for their people
We all know the story of the prodigal son. The young chap hits the road after cashing out his share of the family farm, lives it up, blows it all, crawls out of a wheelie bin in his underpants and then comes back to his family, chastened and fully expecting to be treated as one of his father’s many servants. Instead, his father throws him a party.
