High-Rise Dublin / Apple Tax Case: US Treasury takes on EU Commission
Congested, overcrowded and with soaring rents, Dublin needs development. But which kind? Ibec produced a report this week arguing for more high-rise buildings to accommodate the capital's swelling population. Fergal O'Brien, director of policy with Ibec joins Cliff Taylor and Ciarán Hancock to look at the steps needed to ensure our capital's future and also how much focus there should be on regional development.
In part two Cliff and Ciarán look at the major business stories of the week with Joe Brennan and Eoin Burke Kennedy, including:
- Farmers clash with Larry Goodman's ABP
- CSO data showing over two million in employment for first time since the crash
- Print circulation dives
- "Brexit? What Brexit?" for Kingspan after positive results
- US Treasury fires shot across EU Commission's bow over corporate tax
