Note the following two propositions. First proposition: Ireland's present economic boom depends comprehensively on a creative and imaginative approach to the housing crisis within Irish society. Second proposition: Ireland's government, itself the guarantor of such continued prosperity, has failed equally comprehensively to adequately and coherently address this long-standing social problem in Irish society, at the risk of curtailing further economic growth. This housing problem has had an antecedent role in undermining Irelands social and economic system, and has had a continuous role in undermining economic and social infrastructure up until the present day, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

The dichotomy between these two positions is nowhere more evident than in the recent efforts to address the housing issue: namely the three Bacon & Associates' Reports, which set out the terms and parameters of how this dichotomy might be addressed, yet remarkably the government put at risk the countries prosperity by inadequately responding to what was in itself an insufficient response to the issue at hand.
