Brendan M. Walsh (1940-2016): The economist at work

Abstract: Physically as well as intellectually, Brendan Walsh (BMW) bestrode the narrow world of Irish economics like a colossus for decades. In part this reflected his calm debating style, and his common-sense ability to synthesise a vast range of knowledge of the Irish economy. But it also reflected the fact that he published consistently and voluminously throughout his career. He was particularly productive in its early stages, in the wake of his return to Ireland from the United States in 1969 at the age of 29, and was still very much an active researcher when he passed away suddenly in May 2016. BMW’s scholarly publications are listed in the appendix below.1 About two-thirds of the total appeared in Irish journals (including nineteen in The Economic and Social Review between 1970 and 2017) and in other Irish outlets; the rest in places as varied as The European Economic Review and The Journal of Regional Science; Demography and Political Studies; The Journal of Biosocial Science and Explorations in Economic History. Those titles convey a sense of both the quality and the broad interdisciplinary range of BMW’s research, spanning micro and macroeconomics, health and labour economics, political science, demography, economic history, and moreover nearly half a century. In what follows, we will attempt to give a flavour of the most original and influential of his publications. We discuss in turn his contributions to demography, labour economics, macroeconomics and exchange rates, political behaviour, and economic pedagogy.
