Description

After several years of extraordinary economic growth that had turned Ireland into the "Celtic Tiger", drawing comparisons to Southeast Asia's dynamic economies of the early to mid 90s, in 2000, Ireland's government decided to shift its fiscal policy towards an expansionary stance. The country's priorities. therefore, changed from economic growth to poverty reduction through income and fiscal policies.
