IRISH is one of the countries most developed countries.
It has a well-developed healthcare system and a well connected and diverse population.
But it has also one of its worst exit rates in the world.
In the past five years, Ireland’s population has shrunk by 6.6 per cent.
It’s now the third-smallest in the European Union, behind Malta and the Czech Republic.
“Ireland’s exit rate is much higher than the UK and it’s actually much higher in countries with higher populations than Ireland,” said Clare MacNeill, professor of social policy at the University of St Andrews and co-author of Exit: The Hidden Costs of Leaving.
“So the main reason why Ireland’s exit is so high is that it is one that’s much more heavily invested in social welfare, in community development and that’s very much associated with the social welfare systems.”
MacNeill says Ireland’s social security system is among the world’s worst.
She said that the country’s social housing needs and the costs associated with healthcare are a major factor behind its poor exit rate.
She says this “harsh” environment is the result of the country being a member of the European Economic Area (EEA), a free-trade area.
“The way that Ireland has implemented the EEA has been to put a lot of emphasis on social welfare,” she said.
“Ireland’s a very small country, and when you have a lot less money you have to take a much more hard look at what you’re actually doing with that money.”
So I think that Ireland’s actually got a pretty severe social welfare system that’s a lot more reliant on people leaving.
“MacNeil says that Ireland should also be considering what to do about the fact that its population has grown to more than 11 million people.
She says the government should introduce more targeted and targeted funding to reduce the social cost of living.”
I think Ireland’s a great example of the sort of things that a lot, a lot smaller countries should be looking at and looking at what they can do to really address these social cost factors and make sure that people are not left out in the cold,” she told ABC Radio’s Insiders program.”
There are a lot who feel that Ireland does not have a proper social safety net.
They feel that the system is unfair, and it has to be reformed and there needs to be a rethink of the way that the government funds social services.
“MacNaughton says that many people who have moved to Ireland have struggled to find housing, but that a lack of investment in social housing is also a major problem.”
There are many people that are simply not able to access those services, and so that’s why the government is very, very concerned about this social cost.”ABC Insiders: What you need to know about Brexit, immigration, the refugee crisis, and the economy to get the most out of this week’s podcast.
