The Economy of Ireland has been the core text for students of the Irish economy for over forty years and the latest edition will ensure that this continues. More generally, the approach and the issues considered are relevant across many of the EU’s smaller countries so the audience will extend beyond Ireland. The integration of macroeconomics, microeconomics, policy and theory in a single volume make this an uniquely enlightening volume.” (Professor Alan Barrett, Director of the Economic and Social Research Institute, Dublin) “The Economy of Ireland is the recognised text for students and for anybody who is looking for one authoritative and accessible book on the Irish economy – an invaluable resource and a guide for further reading.” (Professor Mary E. Daly, President of the Royal Irish Academy)
The Economy of Ireland has been the standard undergraduate reference on the Irish economy for decades now, and this latest edition is a worthy addition to the series.” (Professor Kevin O'Rourke, University of Oxford, UK)
