IoD Cork Briefing - 'Can We Move from Rapid Recovery to Stable Growth?'

13 February 2019 6:00pm

In this briefing, Seamus Coffey will look at indicators from the labour market, government accounts and national accounts to assess the nature of Ireland's economic recovery. 

As the economy moves towards full employment, what are the risks that could knock us off a balanced-growth path? The presentation will look to whether we are living within our means and whether it is possible that growth could be too high.
