Timeline of David McWilliams
McWilliams has written four best-sellers, The Pope’s Children, The Generation Game, Follow the Money and The Good Room. He has written and presented documentaries in Ireland and Australia, not just on economics topics but also exploring the Republic of Ireland’s relationship with Britain and championing Ireland’s left-wing and first female President Mary Robinson.
In 2010, he staged “Outsiders” a part stand up, part discussion, part social observation at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin.
He co-founded Europe’s only economics festival Kilkenomics in 2010 which combines economics with standup comedy.
McWilliams questions Ireland’s continued participation in the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union in his books. In an interview with Irish broadcaster Marian Finucane, on RTÉ (17 January 2009) and reported in the international press, McWilliams argues: “What I am saying is, that in Europe, if Ireland continues hurtling down this road, which is close to default, the whole of Europe will be badly affected, the credibility of the euro will be badly affected. .. It is very essential that we go to Europe and say we have a serious problem. … the way we get out of this is either – there are two options – either, we default, or we pull out of the euro. If we have a single currency, there are obligations and responsibilities on both sides. The idea that France and Germany can just hang us out to dry – as has been the talk the past few days – should not be taken lying down.”
McWilliams said that, providing the banks were reformed, some sort of “bad bank” would be necessary. One idea is to divide our banks into good and bad banks. We could set up one or two bad banks, which would be “financial skips” into which we throw bad loans. In 2009 McWilliams criticised NAMA as proposed, and was in turn criticised by Brian Lenihan. The Minister for Finance took the unprecedented step of attacking the commentator in a full-page editorial piece in the Irish Independent.
McWilliams was initially supportive of the bank guarantee of September 2008, describing Brian Lenihan’s action as a “masterstroke” and claiming that by “coming up with a unique, Irish plan — guaranteeing all deposits — instead of importing a failed solution from abroad, he has instilled confidence in the Irish financial system.” McWilliams even predicted that it would “obliterate[s] ” the hedge funds who were short selling the Irish financial sector.
McWilliams has coined several terms which have become part of everyday Irish speech, such as “breakfast roll man”. In January 2007, McWilliams was selected as one of 250 Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum and is a regular in the international speaker circuit.

In 2003, on RTÉ 1 he argued that the housing boom was nothing but a “confidence trick” foisted on the Irish people by “an unholy alliance of bankers, landowners and a pliant political class” which would collapse resulting “in a generation in negative equity”
