Marc's predictions on crisis and recovery come true:

In 2004 he warned against a weakening of the Stablity Pact

In 2005 he interviewed Jean Claude Trichet and carried his warnings about Financial Regulation

In 2006 he warned economy was out of control and called for remedial action

In 2007 he warned political parties that their spending plans were based on overoptimistic forecasts

Between 2008 and 2011 he warned relentlessly against excessive negativity overly restrictive regulation and overtaxation which he said would delay recovery

Finally in 2012 he was proven right as Central Bank forecasts suggested property prices were 26% overvalued and Fitch ratings agency reversed predictions of property price falls.

Since then the recovery - which Marc did much to fight for - is now gaining momentum.
