With radical goals for work and wages, public services and taxes as well as new enterprises, Healy presents a credible vision for Ireland in the twenty-first century, a place where every citizen of this island can enjoy a life of dignity, security and respect. A shared vision for Ireland that maps out a radical path to a better future, sure to ignite an island-wide debate.

At the First Dáil Éireann on 21 January 1919, a new Democratic Programme was announced and then swiftly abandoned. The central goals of this highly aspirational manifesto were ‘Liberty, Equality and Justice for all’.

A century later, Tom Healy, director of the Nevin Economic Research Institute, explores the economic policies of both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and meticulously shows how they failed generation after generation. Proposing an alternative economic order for the next 100 years, An Ireland Worth Working For tackles the major challenges – technology, demographics and environment – facing the island of Ireland in a changing EU.

With radical goals for work and wages, public services and taxes as well as new enterprises, Healy presents a credible vision for Ireland in the twenty-first century, a place where every citizen of this island can enjoy a life of dignity, security and respect.

Tom Healy is director of the Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI). He has previously worked in the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI), the Northern Ireland Economic Research Centre, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the National Economic and Social Forum and the Department of Education and Skills. He holds a PhD (economics and sociology) from University College Dublin. His research interests include the impact of education and social capital on well-being, housing, healthcare and a social vision and economic strategy for the island of Ireland.
