Abstract

This study is will examine the recession, the impact of the recession on individuals and the changes it can cause for families. It will also include observations on organisations have made changes to survive and also how other firms have taken advantage of the recession. This study will examine the social problems, which are not addressed by the Government.

Unemployment figures keep increasing while the affects of unemployment seem to be overlooked. Ireland has enjoyed prosperity for many years however the failure of our Irelands economic system has resulted in thousands of people being unemployed while many families are on or close to the poverty line. Although Ireland is now officially out of the recession, this downturn is to continue into the unforeseeable future.

This dissertation will observe other social affects of the recession, which have directly and indirectly impacted on ordinary individuals, such as health, poverty, alcohol abuse, divorce and separation.
