Ireland has experienced the largest destruction of wealth of any developing country during the 2007-2010 economic crisis. No one agrees what factors caused this crisis, and no one agrees on what to do about the crisis.
Understanding Ireland’s Economic Crisis brings together policy makers, union representatives, and internationally recognised academics to look at Ireland’s crisis from many angles. The book provides a set of key recommendations to guide Ireland’s policy makers into a post-crisis era.
The book is written for a general audience, and should be of great interest to policy makers, and undergraduate students, as researchers and graduate students.
