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.
