  • Outlines alternative short- and long-run economic models and demonstrates how to use these models in evaluating today’s economic issues.

Provides students with an evaluation of the long-run economic performance of the Irish economy, looking at the factors that led to the present crisis and the policies that will help us emerge from it. Looks at Ireland’s experience as a member of the euro area and the prospects for the euro area in light of the current crisis.

“If anyone thought that the arrival of the euro would end interest in Irish macroeconomic developments, the events of the past six years has dispelled that illusion. (With this book) a new generation of Irish students will now be armed to help answer the biggest and most challenging economic policy question of today – how to consolidate the return to employment and income growth and manage down the burden of debt”

Professor Patrick Honohan, Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, 20th September 2013
