This Reboot Republic podcast talks to Dr Tom McDonnell, Director with the Nevin Economic Research Institute and Dr Tricia Kielty, Head of Policy with St Vincent De Paul, about the General Election and the economy. We discuss the folly of tax cuts when huge investment is required in health, childcare and housing, also that when it comes to tax cuts its always the higher income earners that benefit. The fiscal space is explained and dissected and a few myths are busted – such as the idea that a Left led government with higher tax and higher investment would be bad for the economy and scare off investors. Climate, childcare and tax are also explored. This is the economics conversation that everyone should listen to.
