TK Whitaker 1916-2017

By Tom Geraghty Wednesday, 11th January 2017 | 0 comments
Ken Whitaker is often referred to as Ireland’s most distinguished public servant. Despite what you might read or hear in our media, this country has been fortunate to have had, and to have still, many distinguished public servants but few would quibble with the plaudits heaped on Mr. Whitaker both now upon his death and during his lifetime.

A Note on the Passing of T. K. Whitaker

By Seán Carabini, Assistant General Secretary Tuesday, 10th January 2017 | 0 comments
Today, the State mourns the passing of T. K. Whitaker, a great Civil Servant who provided both the ideas and the management skill needed to begin to bring about an end to the decades of economic neglect and short-sightedness that had long held the people of the country back from opportunity. He epitomises still the values to which Public Servants aspire and against which we measure ourselves. Be it through his economic advice and policies or his assured hand at times of potential national crises, or, perhaps, most important of all, his sheer common sense, Whitaker helped to steer Ireland on to a course where it could offer something better to its people. And for that reason, we acknowledge and celebrate his contribution and mourn his loss. He was a man who made a difference.

Employment grows, unemployment falls but does anybody care?

By Tom Geraghty Monday, 9th January 2017 | 0 comments
Commentators on our economy often say that creating employment is the absolute priority. But is it? If so, for whom? After all, the 2011/2016 Government oversaw unemployment fall by about 40% in their term of office. It did not do them much good when it came to a General Election! Should it have mattered? Maybe, the electorate does care and just does not believe that Government deserves any credit for employment growth. Maybe people believe and/or maybe it is so, that our employment creation has little to do with Government. Perhaps, but the electorate in 2011 was fairly unforgiving of an outgoing Government that they blamed for the economic collapse. Maybe that was because the collapse affected not just a minority who lost their jobs but impacted deeply on the living standards of those who remained in work also. That would suggest a very selfish electorate that is largely unconcerned about others losing, or gaining, employment, an electorate that reacts badly if they are affected personally, but only in that case.
