Economist Stephen Kinsella Warns Against Further Austerity

With the Troika set to unleash Ireland from its 5-year bailout on December 15th, Economist and University of Limerick Lecturer, Stephen Kinsella warns of “loading further austerity” on Ireland.

This is a subject Stephen will address in detail at our upcoming seminar in Galway.

Stephen Kinsella speaking in Tralee

Future Proof your Business takes place in the G Hotel, Galway on Thursday 21st November and takes a closer look at the strategies SMEs should employ to spark growth while further protecting their business against past and current austerity measures.

The event is free and is open to businesses planning growth or consolidating their position in strong markets.  Stephen Kinsella’s presentation is complemented by a series of tips for owner/managers on how to future proof their business.

Stephen Kinsella spoke to Newstalk on Ireland’s exit from the bailout which is funded by the International Monetary Fund, European Commission and European Central Bank.

He says, “Exiting on December 15th and 20th without a precautionary credit line would mean we would have extra conditions placed on us by our lenders, which would translate as more austerity.”
