This book analyzes and questions the much-celebrated success of the Irish development strategy. The Republic of Ireland has followed an export-oriented development path, relying on foreign direct investment as its main engine of development. However, this strategy has led to growing industrial, social and developmental polarization despite the impressive overall growth figures. Growth has been driven primarily by the investments of multinational companies.
