Making the Irish Labour Market Work
Ireland's unemployment rate is high, not only in absolute terms but relative to other member states of the EC. By calculating the rise in the personal tax burden over the past decade and relating it to unemployment statistics, the author of this book argues that there is a demonstrable link between high taxes and high unemployment. Paul Tansey is a former Economics Correspondent of the Irish Times who now writes a weekly colum for the Sunday Tribune.
