The Irish Macroeconomic Crisis of 1955-56: How Much Was Due to Monetary Policy
AbstractThe macroeconomic crisis of 1955-56 was the defining event of post-war Irish economic history. What had been an underperforming economy slid into deep recession for reasons which were poorly understood. The long-term consequences were considerable: the reorientation of economic policy that resulted led to the restructuring and expansion of manufacturing on the basis of tax- and grant-aided foreign direct investment to a degree which today continues to be unparalleled.
