The Celtic Tiger: The Myth of Social Partnership in Ireland
Kieran AllenISBN: 0719058473;
Ireland is today's success story, a "Celtic Tiger" where the free market brings unprecedented wealth and opportunity. This book looks below the surface to discover a discontented majority who do not share in this prosperity. The booming economy, built on US investments attracted by the prospect of tax cuts, has led to a weakening in social services and a deterioration of quality of life. Cities are gridlocked because of poor public transportation, and housing crises have left 150,000 people in need of adequate accommodation. This critical look brings its class divisions into sharp focus to challenge many myths about Ireland's success story.
