The article presents the views of Bill Harris, the director general of the Dublin based Science Foundation Ireland on the effect of education on economic development, expressed at the University of South Carolina Moore School of Economic Outlook Conference, that was held in November 2005. He illustrated similarities between the economic conditions in Ireland and South Carolina. For economic development, there is a need for aggressive economic policies. One of the key factors in the economic development of Ireland was its investment in education. An increase in education in a country is followed by an increase in standard of living and economic status of the country.
