Event description

Description

In the fateful decade since the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the Bank Guarantee of September 2008, much has happened in Ireland – financial crisis, deep recession, bailout by the ‘Troika’, a protracted period of austerity, and vigorous economic recovery. But what has really changed over the last ten years? What developments in the financial and political system have taken place and what has been the cultural effect of the crisis? Will we repeat the same mistakes or find a way to avoid them? A major public event convened by the Moore Institute and Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway will examine these questions with a high profile group of participants and commentators on the crisis, including:

  • Prof. Patrick Honohan, former governor of the Central Bank of Ireland
  • Fiona Ross, chair of CIE, former director of the NLI and former banker
  • Angela Knight CBE, former Chief Executive, British Bankers’ Association
  • Prof. John McHale, NUI Galway and former chairman of the Irish Fiscal Advisory Council
  • Dr. Frances Ruane, former director of the ESRI
  • Colin Murphy, playwright and author Guaranteed! and Bailed Out!
  • Prof. Kate Kenny, Queen’s University Belfast
  • Prof. Gearóid Ó Tuathaigh, NUI Galway
