Money Advice & Budgeting Service
Dublin South East MABS
26 – 28, Lombard Street
Dublin 2

Dear MABS,
My name is Cathlín Ní Houliháin and I earn €35,000 a year.
My annual spend is €60,000 and I have borrowings of €80,000 on which I can barely pay the interest.
I’m spending a further €40,000 to purchase some property-based assets, once worth €80,000, which I hope to be able to sell on at a profit when things improve.
I’m also investing €73,000 in several finance companies, because I decided to act as their guarantor for €485,000 of their debts and deposits.
Wilkins Micawber advises that such leads to misery. Brian Lenihan advises that it leads to prosperity. Morgan Kelly advises that if I want to get to any sort of ‘Prosperity’, I shouldn’t have started from here.
What would you advise?

Yours sincerely,
Cathlín

(just add six noughts to each of the above numbers to gauge Ireland’s actual problem)
