Abstract

Along with other prospective EMU members, the Irish government is now commited to the "Stability and Growth Pact", which proposes heavy penalties for countries whose deficit-to-GDP ratios breach certain stipulated conditions. Agreement on the broad outlines on the Pact of Dublin Summit of 13-14 december 1996 was hailed as a triumph of Irish diplomacy. But most academic economists have expressed grave misgivings about the Pact, even those who are pro-EMU. In this paper I want to explain why I believe the majority is right and why the Pact strenghens the argument for postponing Irish entry to EMU until the UK also joins.
