Credit for the initial stabilisation of the economy is given to the shock therapy of cutting expenditure, favourable exchange rate and other external developments. Possible explanations of the higer rate of growth of output now being achieved include a high level of investment in human capital, improved quality of physical capital formation, and a falling burden of taxation. The contribution of the return to centralised wage bargaining and the role of European Union (EU) assistance are also discussed. The prospects for further economic growth over the medium term are considered to be good.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Irish Bankers' Federation||Copyright (published version):||Irish Bankers' Federation, 1997||Subject LCSH:||Ireland--Economic conditions--20th century
