Such inefficiency fed into the crisis of economic stagnation and mass emigration that engulfed the Republic in the 1950s. As EEC entry became the states goal, adapting and upgrading Irish industries for free trade conditions loomed large in the 1960s.

These ends were pursued through technical assistance schemes and a productivity drive - innovations introduced to the Irish state by the US Marshall Plan. This book looks at this neglected aspect of post-war Irish history and analyzes the social, political, and economic effects of the policies pursued.
