The nature of this transformation plays an important part in understanding Ireland’s property boom and bust, and in understanding the nature of the current crisis in t he social housing sector. As elsewhere, the crisis commenced following the bursting of a pr operty bubble in 2007, but worsened considerably with the global financial cri sis the following year and resulted in the Irish government nationalising almost the entir e banking system in 2009 and negotiating an emergency loan from the European Uni on and the IMF to fund public spending and the bank bailout in 2010.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||UCD Geary Institute for Public Policy||Keywords:||Housing policy; Global financial crisis; Irish housing policy; Property bubble; Pro-cyclical social housingpolicy||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
