To this end a fully articulated medium-term model of the economy is employed, in contrast to the four equation model of the labour market adopted by Newell and Symons (1990) in their recent study on the topic. The proximate causes identified in both cases include the swings in domestic fiscal policy, demographic factors and the shocks which buffeted the world economy. Our conclusions differ quite sharply form their, however, and the reasons for these differences are explored.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
