Disturbing Signs from Government

Another Sunday and more worrying articles in the Sunday papers. It seems that Enterprise Ireland is going to significantly cut its overseas staff according to the Sunday Business Post. According to the article staff numbers will drop by more than a third in the seventeen Enterprise Ireland locations around the world. This at a time when we need to create a stimulus for export-oriented Irish companies.

Whatever side of the economic argument you stand on, regarding a deficit-cutting agenda or a stimulus agenda, the fact is that cutting core elements of the knowledge economy makes the government’s standard line that the knowledge or smart economy is their priority somewhat of a joke. The job-less recovery indeed.
