Oak Tree, 1999 - Business & Economics - 263 pages
When the first edition of The Celtic Tiger was published, Ireland was still trying to come to terms with its economic success. Since then, the good news has continued to pour in. Long used to recession, unemployment, and emigration, Ireland is now a dynamic and vibrant country.

Did the remarkable turnaround of the Irish economy just happen, or was it a result of shrewd policy decisions? What remains to be done in eliminating poverty and inequality and reforming taxes? What lessons does Ireland's success pose for other countries.
