Banks, bondholders and risk- Ireland’s call
Can restructuring/burden-sharing lead to growth, investment, jobs?
Debt looms over every discussion about Ireland. Is public and private debt sustainable? Is it fair? Who pays? Who decides?
The practical question comes down to how to deal with debt so that the real economy – real businesses, real jobs, real livelihoods – have the best outcome, soonest.
No course of action is easy. Timing is critical, too. There are risks in every direction. Which is the best course? What is do-able, what will work?
Business for Ireland is hosting an open discussion forum focused on these practical questions. Key speakers to lead the discussion and stimulate participation will include:
Dermot O’Leary, Goodbody Stockbrokers, author of the influential analysis ‘Irish Debt Dynamics’ February 2011
Donal Donovan, former Deputy Director at the IMF, adjunct professor at the University of Limerick, visiting lecturer at Trinity College Dublin.
Brendan Keenan, Economics Editor, Independent Newspapers, Ireland’s leading economic journalist
The event will be chaired by Margaret Doyle, Columnist, Reuters BreakingViews.
Places are limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
