Innovation & why piloting innovation services in Ireland is not a good idea!


Innovation in Ireland is overly concentrated on tax credits for the large multinationals rather than in the Irish SME's. Government and the political classes have too much vested interest in maintaining the status quo and are the blockers to real disruptive innovative services been developed and test piloted first in Ireland. Disruption wont be allowed when government and civil servants control major stakes in Banking, Electricity, Gas, and of course NAMA now the world's biggest property company. Companies like Ryanair and Stripe are rare exceptions to the rule proving that Irish people and Irish companies can be world champions if freed from the shackles of small minded government and crony politics which all too often get in their way.
