The State We Are In

20 June 2023

The last three years have seen repeated crises and hardship for large swathes of Irish society. Just as Ireland was recovering from Covid, a cost-of-living crisis erupted, and continues today. While everyone has been affected, not everyone has been equally affected. But who, if anyone, is to blame? Has inequality increased over the last couple of years, and why? This report examines inequality in Ireland in recent years and over the long run. It examines Ireland’s ongoing cost of living problems, and the distributional impact of inflation. It also attempts to chart a way forward.
