DUBLIN, Ireland (CNN) -- President Clinton turned Friday from the turmoil in Northern Ireland to the Irish Republic's thriving economy, meeting with Irish business and political leaders as a new anti-terrorist law took effect in Ireland and Britain.

 Low-tax policies created the Tiger (Ireland's Economy)
The Ireland they left behind was a land of high tax, high unemployment, high debt, high emigration, one of low growth, little opportunity, and less hope.
Today, one-third of immigrants are returning Irish nationals, and for many the Ireland of their homecoming is unrecognisable from the place they left, not least the low-tax regime that has released energy and enterprise, that has generated self-confidence, created jobs and helped raise living standards.
But since the ICTU now chooses to believe that Ireland's low-tax model was not a factor in the economic boom, it now favours higher taxes to finance higher spending, and feels those higher taxes would not adversely affect economic performance, by damaging employment and growth prospects.
