This Reboot Republic podcast discusses what should be in Budget 2022 with Dr Tom McDonald of the Nevin Economic Research Institute and Dr Tricia Keilthy, Head of Policy, St Vincent De Paul. They outline what should be done to address key issues of poverty and inequality, and the economic analysis of where the economy is going and what should be done in Budget 2022. Tom is critical of the proposed tax cuts that could be better used to invest in childcare, while Tricia points out the need to address child poverty. We also discuss tax justice, a semi state public home building agency and poverty proofing Budgets.
