Tom Healy, Director NERI
Let me begin this year with a confession. Had the NERI been in existence 11 years ago in January 2008 we might have anticipated an economic slow down rather than the biggest global economic crash since the 1920s.  Economists and others, naturally, extrapolate from various trends over the preceding years and based on early warning signs of trouble on international financial markets.

Wages and jobs: a lost decade in four charts

Posted on November 30, 2018

How do we know that matters are improving in the economy? Answer: when attendances at Central Statistics Office in the Republic launches of new economic data are down on what they were a few years ago in the deepest of recessions!  Such was an occasion recently at the launch of the Labour Force Survey in Dublin.

Posted on November 16, 2018 by Tom Healy

Tom Healy, Director NERI
As the time left to B-day on the 29th March next shortens, many organisations and individuals are making their own preparations.
