From Pigs to Micro-Processors: The Modernization of Irish Industry. Davis Auditorium at Skidmore College.

The popular and informative Carroll Lecture Series picks up again this fall at Skidmore College. Peter will discuss the transformation of the Irish economy during the 20th and 21st century. 

From an insular and isolated economy after World War II, Ireland was transformed because of the economic policies of T.K. Whitaker and membership in the EEC in 1973. Today, it is a hub for American and other computer and pharmaceutical industries. How did it happen, and what are the consequences it has had on the Irish economy? What will Brexit mean for Ireland as the Gateway to Europe?

Join us at the Davis Auditorium, Skidmore College.
