In 2016 the number of Irish jobs in IDA-supported companies exceeded 200,000, more even than during the Celtic Tiger period. The figures prove how critically important foreign direct investment has become to the Irish economy today, and how seriously we should take threats to our attractiveness as a location for foreign investors. The threats are there, from potential Brexit shocks to the Trump administration's policies on foreign investment, external pressure to change our tax regime and domestic issues like the housing shortage that undermine our competitiveness. In the next two years IDA chief executive Martin Shanahan wants to add another 80,000 jobs to the 200,000 already brought in by the state agency. He talks to Ciarán Hancock about the agency's achievements, the upsides and downsides of Brexit and Trump and how the IDA will navigate the choppy waters ahead.

If you've shopped online and you're Irish you may be familiar with the feeling that you are being ripped off by international retailers. Geo-blocking (when you can't access a site aimed at consumers in another country) and excessive price differences are the most frequent complaints, and we Irish make more such complaints than most others, according to a report today from the European Consumer Centre.

We talk to ECC representative Martina Nee about the report's findings, and to Mark Paul and Laura Slattery about personal experiences of what Mark calls the "Paddy Levy". Have you been caught out by the levy? Email us your stories:

Also on the podcast, we look at Minister for Housing Simon Coveney's big announcement that rent increases will be capped at 4% per year in Dublin and Cork. It seems no-one is entirely happy with the plan - but is it better than nothing? John McCartney of Savills Auctioneers, Mick Byrne of the Dublin Tenants Association and our property editor Madeline Lyons weigh in.
