  • The computer sector in Irish manufacturing: past triumphs, present strains, future challenges 

    Bradley, John (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 2002)
    The health of the computer sector has come to symbolise the modernisation and rapid growth of the Irish economy during the 1990s. Any threats to its sustainability strike at the heart of broader economic and industrial ...
  • The economic implications of peace in Ireland 

    Bradley, John (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1995)
    In our paper, we will first set the scene for the post cease-fire economic possibilities by briefly examining what we refer to as the "lost" years since the start of open conflict in the North in 1969. Although economists ...
  • Economic management in Ireland post-EMU: policy implications of globalisation and regionalisation 

    Bradley, John (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1999)
    In today?s increasingly globalised economy, it is something of a paradox that while policy-making autonomy is being progressively ceded by states to supranational organisations, regions within nation states have also begun ...
  • Evaluation of the ratio of unemployment rates as an indicator of fair employment: a critique 

    Bradley, John (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1997)
    A recent study by Gudgin and Breen (1996) criticised the use of the high and stable ratios of Catholic to Protestant unemployment rates in Northern Ireland as a measure of the existence and extent of job discrimination. ...

    Bradley, John; Fitzgerald, John; Kearney, Ida (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1991)
    Using new time series data a structural econometric model of a three way disaggregation of the market services sector is constructed. The elasticities of demand for the factors of production (capital and labour) in two of ...
  • Lags in transmission of inflation 

    Bradley, John (Economic and Social Research InstituteDublin, 1977)

  • Modelling aggregate supply for a medium-term macroeconometric model 

    Bradley, John; Fanning, Connell (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1982)
    As the survey of model building in Ireland (Fanning and Bradley, 1982) identified most of the Irish macromodels are short-term in nature. One model, COMET ? 1976 (Barten et al., 1976), was an important attempt to build a ...
  • On the causes of Ireland's unemployment 

    Barry, Frank; Bradley, John (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1991)
    This paper attempts to account for the rise in Irish unemployment between 1970 and 1987. To this end a fully articulated medium-term model of the economy is employed, in contrast to the four equation model of the labour ...
  • The ratio of unemployment rates and fair employment: a response to Richard Breen 

    Bradley, John (Economic & Social Research InstituteDublin, 1998)
    In my original critique of the G&B study I addressed three issues. First, the political context within which that study was commissioned, issued and debated. Second, the fact that such a crucial analysis of a highly divisive ...
  • Twenty-five years of modelling the Irish economy - retrospect and prospect 

    Fanning, Connell; Bradley, John (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1982)
    Macroeconometric models provide a simultaneous and endogenous empirical framework for the evaluation of policy alternatives and the generation of forecasts. As such they can play a significant role in policy research and ...
  • Two regional economies in Ireland 

    Bradley, John; Wright, Jonathan (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1993)
    The two regional economies of Ireland are located in a world of increasing economic interdependence. Market completion within the European Community is at an advanced stage, January 1st, 1993 being the symbolic start to ...
  • Verdoorn law - a retrospective view 

    Bradley, John; Prendergast, Canice (Economic and Social Research InstituteDublin, 1986)
    We examine the origins of the Verdoorn law and the key role it plays in Kaldor's growth analysis. We suggest that two empirical studies of the Irish economy (Kennedy, 1971 and Kennedy and Dowling, 1975) can be interpreted ...
