#Budget2020 – The Reality Ep.80

This Reboot Republic podcast gives the reality of Budget 2020. With Dr Tom McDonald, economist with NERI, Tricia Kielty, Senior policy officer with St Vincent De Paul, and Michael Taft economist with SIPTU.

The overall analysis is that this budget failed to address poverty or inequality in a significant way, it falls way short on addressing the housing crisis or climate emergency.

Alternative, evidence based policies are outlined and the panel explain how this is a regressive Budget where those on lower incomes are set to pay the price of Brexit, with the deferral of the minimum wage and ultimately this will mean rising poverty next year. There’s also fascinating conversation on how the next General Election will be fought.
