Another Blast from the Past - NYT 1987

This time a New York Times article from February 15th 1987:

"The conservative economic ideas often identified with President Reagan and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher have become a key part of the campaign debate in Ireland this year. A new center-right party, the Progressive Democrats, has become the main vehicle for promoting the conservative remedies as a way to overcome the nation's crushing economic ills. But in the campaign for the election Tuesday, Prime Minister Garret FitzGerald and his Fine Gael party are also calling for deep spending cuts as a prelude to lower interest rates, lower taxes and greater reliance on the private sector."

For the rest of the article, follow this link.
