Key choices in the wake of the Brexit Referendum result

06 October 2017


In July 2016, I spoke at the Magill Summer School about the key choices facing Government and Irish business in the wake of the referendum result.

The key question was whether we should retreat into a defensive mode and cautiously pare back investment and expansion plans or do we plan to make our economy more resilient. The speech covered the major challenges facing the Irish economy in terms of Brexit itself, fiscal policy and wage progression.
