Ulster Bank: Weakest economic growth since 1986 expected

What annoys me a little bit is that here againg it says “economic growth = housing boom” and “Property doom = economic downturn”.
Do people here have no better ideas than investing their money in property? Since when is a property market the SINGLE MOST import factor for an economy? (Maybe it is in Ireland - if so then Good night, lads!)

i’ll translate that for you into easyspeak: ‘we will continue to shaft people, economy will worsen and we’ll pile drive ya’s the whole duration of the ride down’
