Ireland has been through many “boom-Bust” economic cycles. Each “bust” has led to assurances that lessons have been learned and that changes will be made to ensure that the next recovery will be sustainable. Election 2016 occurs at the cusp of such discussions and offers us an opportunity to vote for policies which can indeed break the “boom-bust” cycle and deliver a more stable future. Real sustainability will require a long term vision and a capacity to develop and implement policies which will have their impact in 10 or even 20 years’ time.
