ARINS podcast 27: Who is Better Off? The Irish, Northern Irish or the British?01 November 2023
In this month’s ARINScast Paul Gosling author of 'A New Ireland' and 'Lessons from the Troubles and the Unsettled Peace', shares his insights regarding the quality of life, the standard and cost of living, and disparities in disposable income, (income inequality) in and across Northern Ireland, Ireland and Britain with Professor John Fitzgerald and our ARINS host Rory Montgomery. Drawing on Gosling’s regional comparisons, in educational attainment, technical skills, productivity, and housing they explore why the cost of living crisis impacts Northern Ireland more readily than the Republic and Great Britain.
