The new edition of the Economic and Social Review is now available online. The edition contains two policy papers. One is this paper by Eilish Kelly, Seamus McGuinness and Philip O’Connell on public sector pay rates. I think Richard Tol is going to open a thread on the other paper which focuses on the carbon tax.
The three regular papers in the edition (David Audretsh on entrepreneurship, Ken Benoit and Michael Marsh on political science in Ireland, and Vahagn Galstyan and Philip Lane on fiscal policy and competitiveness) are also, in my opinion, very interesting contributions.
