Contributing to Macro-Economic Policy in Ireland

  • John FitzGerald Trinity College Dublin


From 1970, the return of many Irish economists who had studied abroad contributed greatly to the volume of research on the Irish economy and to the related debate on policy. This was reflected in the establishment of The Economic and Social Review in 1969 and, since its establishment, the research published in the Review has made an important contribution to our understanding of the behaviour of the Irish economy and to improving the quality of policymaking.
