Contents Introduction -- An Irish depression -- International organisations -- Domestic organisations -- Academia -- The newspapers -- Politics -- Conclusion.
Summary This book seeks to understand why almost all commentators on the Irish economy were unprepared for the scale of the recent economic crisis. It analyses the public contributions from a broad range of observers, including domestic and international agencies, academics, the newspapers and politicians. This approach gives new insights into the analytical and institutional shortfalls that inhibited observers from recognising the degree of the risk. The book demonstrates that most commentators were either impeded in what they could say, or else lacked the expertise to challenge the prevailing view. The findings have significant implications for a broad range of institutions, particularly the media and the Oireachtas (the Irish Parliament). Ciarán Casey is a specialist in modern Irish history and political economy. He has previously worked as a researcher in both the International Development and technology sectors.-- Provided by publisher.
