Open Dissent provides an inside look at the Irish banking ciris and evaluates its causes and potential solutions from the perspective of an international banking expert. Far from playing the "blame game," Soden examines the international and domestic causes of recession in Ireland and across the EU, looking candidly at the actions of Irish banking executives as well as the national mindset of Irish investors. After discussing the many causes of the current financial crisis in Ireland, Soden provides a new model for Irish banking that could lead to economic recovery and stability.
