Business Daily comes from the Kilkenomics Festival in Ireland. It's a blend of economic conference and comedy fringe where standups and economists put the Irish economy under the spotlight. It's been no laughing matter but this year it is predicted to be the fastest growing in Europe. But does it feel as good on the ground as does on paper? We visit one of the ghost housing estates where houses built in the boom but left empty after the bust are being put back to use. Plus we look at the issue of tax and the 'Irish double'. Will the big tech companies stay here now that this tax loophole has been closed?
From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
