The recovery in the public finances in Ireland following the financial crisis

Last week Diarmaid Smyth of the Central Bank presented a paper to The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland (SSISI) on Ireland’s recovery from the economic and financial crisis. The paper and presentation provide a rich recent history of developments in Ireland’s public finances during the crisis and recovery.

Interested readers might also be interested in a follow-up piece by Brendan Keenan, titled ‘Foreign help and native skill all part of the recovery story’ in the Irish Independent citing both this work and research from Aidan Regan and Samuel Brazys (UCD) on the role played by FDI in enabling Ireland’s recovery.
