Blue hoarding hides an incomplete building project in North Dublin May 31, 2012. Ireland has suffered one of the deepest recessions in Europe after years of reckless decisions made by the country's banks and policymakers brought about a financial crisis that eventually led to Dublin seeking an 85 billion euro ($104 billion) EU/IMF bailout in November 2010. In Oslo, by contrast, the economy has been untouched by the recession and it is a vibrant city with people still spending on everything from housing to consumer goods. Like Dublin ten years ago, there are major building projects underway with luxury apartments being constructed on the waterfront.. Picture taken May 31, 2012.
