serves no vested interest’ – mask what Mary Murphy ( 2012 :358) denotes as Ireland’s ‘dominant technocratic ideology’. In other words, economic governance is represented as immune from or transcendent of political dispute, while its role in sustaining social inequality is obscured. Announcing the over-70s scheme, McCreevy reassured the public that in drafting the budget he had duly considered representations from the social partners. From the 1980s, successive governments secured agreement with business, farming and trade union sectors around a regime of low

there was a growing temptation to exaggerate the degree of support for integration. In 2010, Eurobarometer published the findings of a poll in which it was claimed 75 per cent of Europeans were in favour of giving the EU a stronger role in the coordination of member states’ economic and budgetary policies. 111 Respondents had only been asked about inter-governmental cooperation and there was no mention of the role of the EU or the term ‘European economic governance’.

The expedients of crisis management are being transformed into a lasting mode of economic governance. As Michel Aglietta has observed, the new regime is based on an illusory formula for European prosperity: The Berlin leadership has developed a moralistic interpretation of the crisis. They concede that the Eurozone is important, but insist that it cannot be maintained at any price. The countries whose ‘irresponsibility’ has led the Eurozone to its
