Conor McCabe of Dublin Opinion and Irish Left Review has recently released a book,Sins of the Father: Tracing the decisions that shaped the Irish economy. It looks like an excellent economic history, which will explain how and why our economy, and our economic elites, developed as they did. Some of the work-in-progress can be found on Irish Left Review. You can pick it up from Amazon.
