Ireland: A Lesson for America

Over the past decade, Ireland has been transformed into what’s become known as “The Celtic Tiger.”

Wise economic and educational policies have taken the country from its unenvied status as one of the poorest European nations, to one of the most dynamic, creative, and technologically advanced economies of the developed world.

To give you an idea of just how dramatically this creative and well-educated country has been able to turn itself around, take a look at this: Ireland considering immigration deal with U.S .

Last year, Americans moving to Ireland outnumbered Irish moving to the US by 2.5 to 1.

A recent job fair in New York, for employment opportunities in Ireland, drew crowds that created a line more than 2 and a half blocks long!
