Monetary Data and Proxy GDP Estimates: Ireland 1840-1921

Kevin O'Rourke ()

Working Papers from College Dublin, Department of Political Economy-

Abstract: The paper collects the available Irish banking statistics from 1840 to 1921, and uses these to speculate about trends in living standards during the period. In particular, it estimates a velocity function for five countries using annual data from 1876 to 1913. It then uses this function to estimate Irish velocity, and hence Irish GDP, between 1864 and 1913.
