Ireland tops the charts in economic growth and by many economic measures is powering ahead. So why are so many people left behind and why are we in the middle of the worst housing crisis in our State’s history? Our guest in the tortoise shack, Chief Economist at the Institute of International and European Affairs and Independent Columnist, Dan O’Brien joins us to discuss this, the wider economy and the strengths and weaknesses of our Foreign Direct Investment dependence.
We also discuss precarious work, bogus self-employment and other risks to the Irish economy, including EU tax harmonisation.
