FEPS / TASC Seminar on 'Stimulating Recovery'


Speakers at a seminar organised by TASC and the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) today emphasised the need for an investment strategy to grow the economy, create jobs and counter the current deflationary spiral. The emphasis was on ‘investment towards fiscal consolidation’, and the speakers presented a set of complementary arguments demonstrating that the Government’s fiscal policies have failed, are failing and will continue to fail.

The papers (by Professor Ray Kinsella of UCD, TASC Head of Policy Sinéad Pentony and Michael Burke) can be downloaded from the TASC website (www.tascnet.ie)
