TASC Annual Lecture - David Begg

17th December 2015

Ireland’s long-term sustainability lies in a move away from the current liberal market model towards the social market economy model, David Begg argues in TASC's Annual Lecture 2015.

Ireland should look to the small open economies of the Nordic region, the most economically efficient and socially cohesive region in the world, Dr Begg suggests in a talk entitled  Should people who have visions see a doctor?

The lecture draws on analysis from Dr Begg’s forthcoming book, Lost in Transition:  Ireland, Small Open Economies and European Integration. London. Palgrave MacMillan

The lecture was delivered in Dublin's Royal Irish Academy on Dawson Street on 17th December 2015.

Power point presentation.
