dc.description.abstractIrish policy towards foreign direct investment has evolved since the 1950s as astrategy driven primarily by the use of fiscal incentives to enhance theprofitability of locating in Ireland, with grants as required to achieve a particularbargaining advantage in competing against alternative international locations.Our empirical analysis of European firms in Ireland suggests that the investmentincentives offered appear to have led to significant gross job gains in thetargeted high-tech sectors, as proxied here by the Metals & Engineering andChemicals sectors. However, these gross gains have not translated into netgains of a similar magnitude.-
