Ireland’s Sovereign Debt Crisis
|Title:||Ireland’s Sovereign Debt Crisis||Authors:||Whelan, Karl||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6384||Date:||May-2011||Abstract:||Among the countries currently experiencing sovereign debt crises, Ireland’s case is perhaps the most dramatic. As recently as 2007, Ireland was seen by many as top of the European class in its economic achievements. Ireland had combined a long period of high economic growth and low unemployment with budget surpluses. The country appeared to be well placed to cope with any economic slowdown as it had a gross debt-GDP ratio in 2007 of 25% and a sovereign wealth fund worth about €5000 a head.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
