Abstract

This report describes the Irish results of Reference Case II, with comparisons of Case I and Case II results and a further comparison of Case II with an economic plan proposed by the previous Irish government in October 1982. The main hypotheses emerging from EURECA are set out in Table 1.1. The year 1980 is used as the basis of comparison, with Case II analysing 1985 and 1990 Irish economic scenarios resulting from the stated hypotheses. GDP at 1970 prices is postulated to grow at 1.76 per cent per year during 1980 - 1985 and at 1.95 per cent during 1985 - 90. Private consumption, private investment and public consumption, all are postulated to have lower growth rates than GDP; likewise for combined imports of energy and non-energy goods. Exports are postulated to grow at higher rates than GDP, namely 3.11 per cent per year during 1980 - 85 and 2.19 per cent during 1985-90. Public investment is postulated to grow at 4.10 per cent per year during 1980 - 85 and 1.50 per cent during 1985 - 1990.
