217. Cost of Living Crisis; We bailed out banks – Now bail out households

In this Reboot Republic Rory talks to Head of Social Justice and Policy at St Vincent De Paul, Tricia Keilthy, about the cost of living crisis and its impact on households, energy poverty, and how it is not a case of can we afford to provide for welfare increases, but can we afford not to?
We discuss Ireland’s economic and social system that has the highest cost of living in Europe because of a lack of public services and neoliberal unregulated markets. We also outline why we should have the ambition, and policies, to end poverty, particularly child poverty.
