Economics of Lisbon
Slí Eile: Different points of view in relation to the economic impact of the accepting or rejecting the Lisbon Treaty are raised in the Economists for Europe meeting today (see Press release and line up of economists speaking) as well as a discussion on irisheconomy.ie (the Economics of Lisbon) including reports of the Indecon survey of economists, as well as different views for and against on irishleft review. Clearly, there are significant potential economic consequences from any decision made on 2 October. The great issues of the day and this generation are inter-linked inextricably: climate change, jobs, social protection, human rights, competition, banking, toxic debts, fiscal imbalance, ageing populations, lifelong learning.
