About the Economists Group:
The Economists Group contains the Chief Economists from a variety of financial institutions, government departments, NGOs, the trade union movement and academia and research institutes, thereby representing most of Ireland's key stakeholders. It organises frequent private seminars where leading economists present to the group on significant issues for the economic development of the European Union. These presentations are then used as the basis for an in-depth discussion.
Recent sessions have included:
Pat McArdle, Chair of the group, on 'Refinancing the Irish Bailout'.
Sean Berrigan, Director of Monetary Affairs and Financial Stability at DG EcFin, on “Policy Responses to the Eurocrisis and implications for Ireland”.
Attendance at Economists Group events is by invitation only.
