Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

It is of course not factually inaccurate, the tax rate is low, did start the trend to lower corporate tax rates in europe and does attract a lot of foreign companies qho use ireland as a tax haven.

You may assert something else, but that doesn't change the facts.

Being at tax haven isn't a sustainable growth path either.

And as Bofinger pointed out, the tax level of ireland is below the european average. A lot. They only collect something about 35% and would need more then 40%.

And stop lying. I didn't wrote anything about "pay back their national debt". -You even used quotation marks, but that is not even a paraphrase of anything I did ever write.
