The Northern Ireland Economy: Performance, Prospects and Policy

The Northern Ireland Economy: Performance, Prospects and Policy

by Esmond Birnie, David M. Hitchens

Editorial Reviews

The two economists (Queen's College, Belfast) update their 1990 but also broaden their coverage to include more economic sectors and the impact of European Union policies and developments on the regional economy. Though their emphasis is empirical and applied, they also employ current theory on issues such as economic growth and the advantages of clustered economic development. They intend the study to be useful in undergraduate courses on Northern Ireland, regional economics, and geography but also accessible to general readers. They do not include an index. Annotation c.
