Purchased Development: The Irish Republic's Export-oriented Development Strategy

With a Preface by Hartmut Elsenhans

Reihe: Politikwissenschaft, Band 100, 2004, broschiert, 160 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-8258-7178-9

By analysing the Irish development strategy, this book questions its much portrayed success. The Republic of Ireland has followed an export-oriented development path, relying on foreign direct investment inflows as the main development agent. However, this chosen path of development has led to growing industrial, social and developmental polarisations despite the indisputable impressive overall growth figures. Growth is primarily driven by the investing multinationals and the inequality of earnings have been exacerbated, thus questioning the Irish growth model's success.
