Few in Ireland benefit from tax haven status

Riches flow through austerity-stricken EU nation, but most in Ireland only feel the pinch of austerity.

    Ireland is one of the hardest hit countries amid Europe's debt crisis.

    Despite being forced to take austerity measures, billions of dollars are still flowing in and out of the country's economy.

    The problem for Ireland is that it is not collecting much of a share of the money.
