Book Description

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; Huginn Thorsteinsson, philosopher and adviser to the Icelandic Minister of Economic Affairs and the Icelandic Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture; 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.
