Barely a decade later the magazine called it 'Europe's shining light'. Ireland changed the global perception about its economy when, in 1999, its per capita GDP of €23,410 surpassed that of Britain's €22,760. Ireland also ranked ninth in per capita output, among the industrial nations, up from 22nd in 1993.
