Economic SecurityMichael Collins
This chapter reviews issues relevant to the long-term security of the
Irish economy. Economic security and the development of a fairer and
better Ireland are inter-related issues. A secure, stable and strong
economy can contribute to developing a fairer Ireland. Similarly, the
evolution of a more inclusive Ireland offers major opportunities to
enhance this county’s economic position. Recognising this reciprocal
relationship is important.
The chapter first examines a number of key issues necessary to achieve
economic security. It then considers how those issues may be pursued
in Ireland in the years to come.
