Event description

Description

Frank Barry, Professor of International Business and Economic Development, Trinity College Dublin and Adele Bergin, Senior Research Officer, ESRI, will deliver a seminar on the rapidity of Ireland's recovery.

Ireland’s exceptional openness to international trade and factor flows causes it to resemble more a regional than a conventional national economy. Regional economies can grow, decline, and recover more dramatically than conventional national economies since capital and labour inflows complement each other. Regional economies are driven by their 'export base', analysis of which in the Irish case requires that we distinguish between the very different characteristics of the foreign-owned and indigenous sectors.

The speakers compare their perspective to other explanations that have been offered for the rapidity of the Irish recovery.
