Ireland must offer people good living and working conditions to sustain economic success and remain attractive to local and global mobile talent pools. Following a period of economic recession and under-investment, severe problems have emerged in terms of housing affordability and supply, rising congestion, and inadequate provision of education and healthcare. Better Lives, Better Business aims to make Ireland a better place to live and work by persuading policymakers to address the challenges around the country's burgeoning capacity constraints.
