Housing and Ireland's Economic Recovery
AuthorsMicheál Collins and Daragh McCarthy
The latest NERI Research inBrief, published today, focuses on the role housing can and will play in Ireland’s emerging economic recovery. In it the authors (Micheál Collins and Daragh McCarthy) make three key points:
First, housing is an important part of the economy.
Second, housing should be an important part of the recovery.
Finally, they suggest that Ireland needs to enter a new era for housing and housing policy; one where the primary and dominant role for housing is seen as providing accommodation rather than easy and excessive capital gains.
