Descripción del producto
"Beautifully written and surprisingly easy to digest, this book digs deep into the default debate. The insights into the consequences of default for Ireland are compulsory reading for the mandarins in Finance and the false gods of the NTMA. The detached views of such a distinguished cast of characters offer far more enlightenment than you would find at the Cabinet table." --Shane Ross, independent TD, author and business editor of the Sunday Independent
"This is a significant and timely written symposium from a very broad spectrum of opinion holders on the crucial issues for Ireland in respect of the viability of the ECB-IMF bailout and the consequences of its possible failure. Whether one hopes for failure or believes in success, and regardless of whether one agrees with some or none of the contributors, the articles are a must-read for citizens of an embattled society facing difficult but inescapable choices on the future of their Republic, and they will be quoted for years to come in the on-going debate upon which we are launched." --Michael McDowell, barrister and former Minister for Justice
"Sober, balanced, comprehensive, and heavy with facts, What if Ireland Defaults? is necessary reading for anyone who wants to understand how the world will deal with a future of fiscal crises and moral hazard." --Dan Mitchell, senior economist with the Cato Institute
"Rather than hide behind the sofa every time the word `default' is mentioned, we need an intelligent discussion of what it means and doesn't mean for economies, societies and citizens. This book brings together a wide range of perspectives and fact-based analyses on a topic that will dominate policy debates for years. Read this, agree or disagree with the contributors, but let's start acknowledging that debt is an over-riding political issue."
"The book is an excellent read It needs to be read by our politicians and higher public servants. For the rest of us, it s an excellent way to get up the learning curve." John Finn, Irish Examiner, 9 April 2012 --Michael Taft, research officer with UNITE
Reseña del editor
That Ireland might default on her financial debts to Europe and the IMF is an ongoing theme in the media. What If Ireland Defaults? addresses this great 'What If?' question. Ireland's financial crisis and the good and bad of default are discussed from the perspectives of different stakeholders and commentators, such as a market participant, a mortgage broker, an IMF economist, a politician and a financial journalist, as well as a number of eminent Irish and international economists and commentators. Contributors include Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz; economists Constantin Gurdgiev, Megan Greene and Stephen Kinsella; Peter Mathews TD; Senator Sean Barrett businessman and political activist Declan Ganley; politics lecturer and journalist Elaine Byrne; Sam Roberts, Urban Affairs correspondent for the New York Times; John Walsh, editor of Business & Finance; Peter Brown, director of the Irish Institute of Financial Trading; and Karl Deeter, director of Irish Mortgage Brokers. Written with the interested general public in mind, the book is unique in its treatment of the theme of default from many different angles.Ver Descripción del producto

Editor Brian Lucey and Constantin Gurdgiev - two of the country's most brilliant economists - and Charles Larkin - and public policy specialist Charles Larkin have drawn together essays by a diverse group of financial thinkers to look for a solution.
Lucey's introduction lays out the purpose of the book - a cross-section of views on "how, why and on whose watch this crisis emerged". The essay by Gurdgiev - often found giving a direct but simplified-for-the-masses view on the situation on television and radio - is a highly technical analysis of Ireland's possible road to debt restructuring.
Sam Roberts of the New York Times gives a comparative view, with a blow-by-blow account of the New York fiscal crisis of 1975, while Marc Tomljanovich looks at how cash-strapped cities deal with default. Famous names like Joseph Stiglitz and less famous but deeply influential ones like Huginn Freyr Þorsteinsson, advisor to the finance minister of Iceland and macroeconomic forecaster Megan Greene of Roubini Global Economics and political corruption expert Elaine Byrne of TCD, give wide-ranging and informed views and opinions on the Irish crisis and how we can solve it.
