Goldman Sachs International chairman, Peter Sutherland), it was culture, community, locality and creativity that were grasped as the authentic touchstones of who the Irish are. Somehow, a return to the heartland seems to offer the antidote to the globalised cosmopolitan excess when the Irish ‘lost their soul’, while at the same time offering the elixir through which Irish pride and the national economy might be restored. Spacing Ireland: infinite places and singular locations As part of this regrounding, questions of geography have risen to prominence. At their heart

strategies and closer policy alignment between the two jurisdictions will be key. With the end of the Celtic Tiger economy and the dawn of a very different phase of the economic cycle, new patterns of consumption and mobility are set to influence border living and relationships into the future.

spectacular collapse of the Celtic Tiger. By 2011, Ireland had entered a period in which the traces of recent economic prosperity, cultural cosmopolitanism and, particularly, property investment were now overlaid by the trauma of unemployment, negative equity and the death of a dream. The geography of ghost estates charts the fevered speculation, uneven development, and commuting and consumption patterns that emerged during the boom especially in the commuter belts around the main cities (Figure 1.2). There are ghost estates in every county in Ireland. Many are located

landscape that had so captivated American visitors. Widely dispersed commuter landscapes matched an exploding population in counties throughout the midlands and in the regional hinterlands of Irish cities and towns. An accompanying expansion in what McCarthy (2000) humorously labelled the ‘noodle belt’, and ‘sundried tomato zones’, symbolised the cosmopolitan cultural transformation that took place. McWilliams (2005) has characterised the new Ireland and new lifestyles that emerged in inimitable fashion – a homogenised world of BMWs, bustling restaurants, trophy houses

their skills, increase their reach into the public, generate shared political ideas and discern between ideas that would advance the common world and ones that would not. Such adept actors could develop in part through education, certainly, but also crucially through cosmopolitan associations sufficient to discuss life and the world with a broad swath of diverse people. Such associations can develop “an intuitive feeling for worldliness” within us that fits us into and makes possible a common world with a growing horizon of inclusion. Arendt (1958 , 9) goes as far

within UK society. He suggests that the citizenry can be split, broadly, into those who possess an ‘anywhere’ worldview and those who can be classified as ‘somewheres’. The former value independence, mobility, multiculturalism and cosmopolitanism, whilst the latter place higher value on stability, tradition and familiarity. Goodhart argues that ‘anywheres’, whilst fewer in number than ‘somewheres’ (for Goodhart, the ratio is about 30:70), disproportionately make up the ranks of the political and cultural elite in the UK. This is due to their possession of university

Financial expansion itself developed through individual private investors and foreign capital, leading to what Arrighi terms ‘cosmopolitan finance capitalism’ (1994: 162). The organised and universal banking system characteristic of Germany, for example, did not feature in the development of British industrial or financial capitalism (Arrighi, 1994: 163
