Despite the positive environment created by political stability, from 2007 onwards, the movement to more optimal utilisation of the island of Ireland's economic resources have been increasingly endangered by the effects of the sub-prime and banking crises. This chapter examines the contemporary challenges and opportunities facing the island of Ireland by looking at the continued development of cross-border commerce. It analyses the complex cross-border institutions designed to encourage economic activity and the cross-border flows of economic actors in their roles of tourists, commuters and students. It concludes by discussing the politically sensitive case of cross-border shopping.
