As Euro officials take contrasting views on the downgrade of Ireland, Wilbur Ross claims Moody's is attacking the wrong country, noting the government has already carried out major spending cuts. Ross warns if the agencies "downgrade enough people recklessly, nobody will be able to access the public markets in 2013."

    I doubt Moody's gives a rip what damage they do. They seem to have not cared one bit up till now.

    These agencies are protected under "Freedom of Speech". But these are still useless agencies.

    Why anyone puts any merit into these rating agencies is beyond me, this big tear their on down grading everything and anything they set their eyes on thinking they're going to redeem themselves in the public eyes for all the past damage they've done is just hilarious.....

     

    These guys are done, cooked, not an ounce of credibility, integrity left!
