Ireland: From Boom to Bust and Beyond
Journal Issue Pages: 280 Volume 45, Number 1 Published: February 2018 An issue of boundary 2
The articles in this issue explore the political, economic, social, cultural, and literary impacts of the extraordinary neoliberal boom and bust cycle after the Irish government relinquished its economic sovereignty to a Troika comprising International Monetary Fund (IMF), European Central Bank (ECB), and European Commission (EC) officials, a decision that precipitated massive unemployment and youth emigration, wage and social provision cuts, and housing and medical crises and saddled the Irish citizenry with a gargantuan national debt. Despite much lauded miracles of recovery, the effects of this boom and bust cycle will continue to be felt across Ireland for decades to come.
