NAMA - Good News Thread
 
# 1 : Tuesday 2-11-2010 @ 17:51
 
 
Based on the same principle as the CAB - Always Good News Thread...

let's rejoice in the successes of NAMA: http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/nama-reports-euro6m-prof etc ...
The State's 'bad bank' Nama made a profit of €6m in the second quarter of the year, official figures revealed today.

The agency reported set-up costs of €7m making a €1m loss for the work it did over the first half of 2010.

What is the point of this thread there already is a NAMA thread, are you going to have a NAMA bad news thread as well, because I assure you with every cell in my body, with NAMA there will be more bad news then good.

I will agree with you 100% in relation to this. I think corruption and back handers will seep into this agency as well. We seem to be as bad as the mafia when it comes to corruption.

I wish
The plain truth is the property is not worth what they paid for the loans and it never will be. If there is corruption which I doubt it will be small change.

I am positive but when it comes to this current government. You just cannot have faith in them. I think a younger party should come up through the ranks, The current ministers are too long in the tooth, Stuck in their way and they need some fresh ideas and concepts.

We need a character like Michael Collins to be recloned and get us back on track. I am sorry if i came across as negative Penny. In fairness this was started off a nice thread.

I hope everyone have a wonderful evening, Thats a happy ending to my comments.

i csn understand why u might think this penny - but i think many people are just being realistic as well. we have an economic crisis that happened in the background when everyone was smily faced, happy, positive and when lots of extra disposable income allowed lots to have a pretty good lifestyle - now the reality of what kept those times so good have imploded on itself and we are reeling from decisions made then. its not being negative - its a reality now that we all have to take the brunt of getting us out of an economic hole. we only have a population of 4 million (not even sure what % of that is contributing to tax etc). so its a big squeeze on a small amount of people.

Absolutely agree wasn't it our collective heads up our arses from government to regulators bankers builders and us that got us into all this. I always thought you are better off dealing with as close to the truth as you can get.

But my point is Blah posted a good news story and everyone turns into a bad news story, I mean read the link they have made a profit for the first half of the year so they must be doing something right.

i agree taht blahs post on CAB - was a good news post - not convinced that this is in the same category. its only a snapshot of 6 months in an agency that will need to prove itself over 10 years - so i think for me - the report of profit in 6 months is just taken with a slight degree of caution. its like the governement telling us we are turning a corner for the last 6 months and they we're told its goin to cost us an extra 15 billion to get fully around that corner. sorry penny that i cant share ur happiness on this story .
