Social Justice Ireland's  Policy Briefing on Investing for Growth, Jobs and Recovery 2013 

Ireland's newest think tank - the Nevin Economic Research Institute (NERI) -  has proposed a new €15 billion stimulus and investment programme aimed at creating jobs, boosting demand and aiding economic recovery. The ambitious proposal was outlined at the formal launch of the Institute in Dublin on March 27, 2012.
