ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the economic strategy employed by Ireland to overcome the economic crisis it faced in 1988, and explores how Arizona can use Ireland's experience to weather the existing economic downturn facing the U.S. He believes that Arizona leaders should design a strategic plan for its citizens by investing on education, like what Ireland did. In achieving a prosperous future for Arizona and its citizens, the author emphasizes the need for all Arizonians to unify around that goal.
