AbstractFollowing the 2008 global recession, the acronym PIIGS was used to describe the European nations whose economies were negatively impacted the most. These countries were, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain. While the rest of these nations are still stuck in economic stagnation, Ireland has experienced a swift recovery. A combination of austerity measures, foreign direct investment, and effective policy has seen Ireland past this difficult time and transformed the country into a thriving economy. I will describe what Ireland did, and how it was effective relative to the other PIIGS.
