Ireland in Crisis: Challenging the Consensus

category dublin | miscellaneous | event notice author Tuesday November 16, 2010 17:09author by The Ireland Institute - Venue: 27 Pearse Street, Dublin 2author email irelandinstitute at eircom dot netauthor phone 01 - 670 4606 Report this post to the editors

Meeting 2, of a 3-part Lecture Series

The Ireland Institute believes that the debate to date has been dominated by a narrow consensus that does not question the structures within which the crisis is being played out. This consensus regards capitalism as the right and natural way to organise the economy and society: no alternative is admitted. In this worldview, competition, individualism, small government, privatisation, free trade and free movement of capital are self-evidently good and the means to economic success.

The Ireland Institute argues that the way capitalism organises the economy and society is at the root of the crisis. If we want real change, it will not be found in the solutions that are currently being proposed: more regulation of business and finance; reduction in the number of TDs; abolition of the Seanad; and updating of the 1937 Constitution.

Instead, the Institute considers that full democratisation of politics and the economy is the only way to change society so that, in the future, the common good of all citizens will be at the heart of policy. This means that all citizens must have a real share in decision making in Ireland, not just a vote every few years for one or other political elite.

This lecture series will challenge the consensus about the crisis.
