128. An Economic Paradigm Shift vs a Government Stuck in the Austerity Era

This Reboot Republic podcast talks to Colette Bennett, Economic and Social Analyst with Social Justice Ireland, and Ciaran Nugent, Economist with the Nevin Economics Research Institute about the current state of the Irish economy, the post-pandemic paradigm shifts in economics towards a large state borrowing to build and yet the Irish Government are stuck in the tax cutting, debt-reducing austerity ideology and approach. The economic consensus internationally and public attitudes are changing, but the Government has yet to catch up. We talk about wellbeing indicators, health, housing, inequality in wages, Generation precarious and Generation Rent and what can be done.
