I’m putting together a more detailed post about the political situation in Ireland and looking for your help in defining the FFGSF Limited economic policy in Ireland. All insights welcome.
Simple terms that explain the economic policy would work best for responses, thanks everyone

Socialism for the rich (bank bailouts, junior bondholders, MNCtax regime, tax amnesties, vulture fund rentier tax breaks, gas giveaway tax regime).
Capitalism for the poor (no bailouts for us!).
Privatise everything.
It's just standard neoliberal economics 101

Landlordism. Instead of an economy of indigenous start up businesses that would be more stable they would rather young people be hindered by rack rent and jumbo mortgages. We are once again exporting our talent abroad.
Landlordism is one of the main reasons we are in the mess we are in.
I'd favour the economic ideas of Henry George. Increase in property values should be shared more equitably. For instance currently a renter who volunteers with the local tidy towns will get no reward while the owner of a derelict building will find that their property value has increased.

By the Gulag wall.
The free state has a standard comprador economy. A small wealthy elite makes its money by selling the labour and the resources of the country to foreigners. This is typical of nearly all post-colonial countries. The colonist never really goes away. He just moves to one remove, with the native comprador class as his buffer.

SF are in coalition with FFFG. It’s plain to see. AS THE NEXT LARGEST PARTY, They provide Zero opposition to FFFG. That’s the evidence right there. Don’t be fooled by SF. Look what they got for the bribe. Abortion of the unborn, redefinition of marriage, and cosy safe salaries for supporting FFFG.
FFFGSF limited will remain in power until the sheeple wake up.

A State that does not have control of its own autonomous currency ,cannot have an economic policy. The Euro currency entraps Ireland as a colony of Brussels
.It takes orders from Brussels, its Govt is but a puppet pretend Govt, positioned to exploit the resources and citizens of Ireland for the benefit of the Corporations and Financiers, who control the EU.

We don't decide Economic Policy - the ECB does

Within its parameters we have a bit of playroom that's about it

However our current 'strategy' is to wing it for as long as possible

- and hope that we can continue to grow the economy indefinitely....

Which is an impossibility!

So the Big Question is come the next Recession is whether we can weather the storm or not?

I don't have that answer but we are spread so thin that my gut feeling is it will be a very rough ride....

One thing we have not done that could have been done is to bring down to any meaningful degree the Principle we owe on the National Debt

That is a Monkey on our backs that wont go away of its own accord ....
