Our new independent think tank, the Irish Fiscal Policy Research Centre, to be called publicpolicy.ie, has been established to provide policymakers and civil society with the best available evidence to help inform the economic choices we face.
We are fortunate to be funded by Atlantic Philanthropies, so we are not financially dependent on Government, business, union or other interests.
Our website, publicpolicy.ie, will be launched soon. People who wish to be informed when it goes live can leave their email address on the site.
The project has been established with these ambitions:
* Carry out independent research to inform fiscal (tax and expenditure) policy choices;
* Communicate the results effectively;
* Stimulate constructive discussion among policymakers, civil society and the public.
We aim to make it as easy as possible for people to understand the choices and their implications, and most of what we provide will be free to all.
