Can SC learn from Ireland

Recommended Posts


Yeah, I read that article and thought it was a pretty interesting read myself.

SC has 20.4% of its population holding a bachelor's degree or higher. As for our neighbors:

Interesting what Ireland did.

Whenever i play Sim City 4, ill always lower commericial taxes to 8% [maybe 7.8% the least] and raise residential taxes up to 9.5% [maybe as high as 10%] (the default is set 9% for all R/C/I). Its proven that when i do that, economic growth occurs A LOT resulting in population gains and more high rises of both R&C. Ive also noticed that the richer get richer but the poor or middle class diminishes (probably move to nearby cities). In Sim City, i wouldnt care but in real life, you've got to mitigate all classes but especially, help the middle class who are not given enough assistance to cope with cost of living flauctuations.

While Ireland may be a model for economic development, our neighbors serve as models as well, as they have had to overcome the same obstacles that SC is still struggling to overcome.
