Rebuilding Ireland – doomed to fail P2
In this second part of looking at rebuilding Ireland, Margaret looks at the Government action plan, Rebuilding Ireland. She says it is doomed to fail unless there is a fundamental change in ideology. She explores how a housing policy that is largely based on being serviced by the private sector will alway have investment and profit as its goal rather than sustainable housing for the country’s population. She explains that the Government need to change their way of thinking and that the current neoliberal ideology is going to lead to greater costs for the tax payer, higher returns for the investor and less security for the people looking for a home.
