“It’s the society first, and the economy comes afterwards” On this episode, View From A Small Rock: what does the world’s turbulent political economy look like from our little island on the edge of the Atlantic? Stephen Kinsella is Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Limerick. He is Chief Economics Writer for The Currency, and as a columnist with the Sunday Business Post was twice named Economic Commentator of the Year. His research focuses on how we can better understand Ireland’s small open economy, a task of particular importance in the age of pandemics, climate change, global tax reform, and Brexit. On this episode he speaks with Ireland’s Edge founder Muireann Kelliher, where Stephen began by offering his reaction to the performance by Dyrt that we featured on our previous episode.
