The Macroeconomic Challenges Facing Ireland

My talk at the MacGill Summer School yesterday was based on this paper.  Core point: I argue that last week’s European deal calls for an acceleration in the pace of Irish fiscal adjustment.

Update: The webcast for this session (also featuring David Begg, Brigid Laffan and Colm McCarthy) is available here.

Update:  The Irish Times carries a shorter, edited version of my talk in this article.
