Failure Of The Irish Economy Further Proves The Flaw In Brad Wall's 'Unfettered Free Market' Ideology

"Now Ireland is a Celtic tiger that has demonstrated how successful you can be when you have an economic plan focused on competitive taxes, investment in people, and all sectors of the economy working together for economic growth. It is a lesson that this government should be paying attention to."
Don Morgan, MLA
Saskatchewan Party
(Now Saskatchewan Minister of Justice)
March 17, 2006

Brad Wall's Saskatchewan Party based much of its financial policy on what was perceived to be the 'success' of Ireland ... the Celtic Tiger. While in Opposition, the Saskatchewan Party praised the tax cuts, massive spending and business subsidies that have now crippled the Irish economy.

For the record, you don't hear Brad Wall or any of his Ministers singing the praises of the 'Celtic Tiger' recently ...

"Enterprise Saskatchewan:
Conceived by Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall, the agency is loosely modelled on Enterprise Ireland, which is that country’s government agency responsible for development and promotion of its business sector. It was founded in 1998 to help capitalize on and sustain Ireland’s remarkable economic expansion, which led to it being referred to as the “Celtic Tiger".

There is a great lesson to learn from Ireland and its story of glorious success followed by rapid failure. We should be at least aware of a danger called oversupply in all sectors of economy.
