    When I was invited to calculate the regional impact of the EEC on Ireland no published material was available. Now although the work is still at a preliminary stage it is possible to measure some of the major impacts and to identify a number of issues that will have a bearing for the future development of policy. These issues also arise from a consideration of the impact of Irish national policy of which the present study is a logical extension. A brief look at the national studies may therefore provide an appropriate background to a consideration of the Irish situation. The presentation of the EEC impacts will follow in part II In the previous study it was argued that all national policies and programmes will have differential impacts on regions as a consequence of regional differences in resource endowment, income and the size and characteristic of population. This is so whatever the form the implementation of national policy may take, be it monetary policy, fiscal policy related to tariffs and taxation, subsidies, grants or other transfer payments, the direct purchase or provision of goods and services or simply the regulation of the market. Accurate measurement of the economic and social consequences of all policies at regional level was therefore an important prerequisite to the framing of an effective regional policy.
