What’s Next for Ireland’s Economy? – Marc Coleman to Speak at the RIAI Annual Conference 2019

Economist Marc Coleman

Economist Marc Coleman will discuss ‘What’s Next for Ireland’s Economy?’ as part of a ’Future Session’ at the RIAI Conference on Saturday 5 October.

Marc Coleman predicted the economic crisis as Irish Times Economics Editor between 2005 and 2007 and subsequently Ireland’s robust recovery in commentary for the Sunday Independent and Newstalk. He also forecast these developments in two bestselling books, the first of which correctly predicted (in 2007) Ireland’s subsequent population growth and called for investment and regional and urban planning reform to stave off a housing crisis.

Formerly with the European Central Bank and Department of Finance, Marc has also recently represented Ireland’s International Financial Services sector as Director of Ibec’s ‘Financial Services Ireland’ association and was instrumental in leading that sector’s response to Brexit and in establishing the government’s first strategy for the sector, IFS 2020. Marc’s books have been praised by, amongst others, TK Whitaker, Peter Sutherland and Dr. Paul Tansey.

He was the first economist to write a bestselling book, linking together – and advocating a cohesive strategy to simultaneously addressing – Ireland’s housing crisis and spatial imbalance on one hand and carbon footprint challenge on the other. He has been published in the Financial Times, Irish Times, Sunday Independent, London Times, Scotsman and Le Monde and has appeared on RTE, TV3, ZDF and other television channels.
