Myself and Declan Jordan gave this presentation to the West Cork Leader meeting on Future West Cork last night in Inchydoney. It is a summary of West Cork over the last number of years. We used data from various sources to highlight some of the key trends in the West Cork area.
This is a copy of the presentation I gave at this year's Irish Society of New Economists annual conference in UCD. The paper is co-authored with Robert Butler ( also of the Department of Economics UCC). The paper compares two competing growth models, New Economic Geography (NEG) theory and the Solow growth model. The results suggest that both can explain economic growth. Anyone interested in obtaining a copy of the working paper can contact me or Robbie.
This is a copy of the slides I presented to the 3rd Business Statistics Seminar held by the CSO on the 23rd of March 2011 in Dublin Castle. The presentation focuses on sectoral differences in innovation performance. The results indicate that for two types of innovation (new to firm and new to market product innovation) the drivers of innovation vary dramatically across sectors. However, for organisational and process innovation there is no significant difference in the drivers of innovation performance. The paper points to the need for more focused innovation support from policy makers and emphasizes that a one size fits all policy is not appropriate.
