This podcast is part one of our series for everyone who is wondering whether #Budget2020 will make any difference to their lives. In this panel discussion Tricia Keilthy, Head of Social Justice and Policy St Vincent De Paul, Dr Tom McDonnell, Senior Economist at the Nevin Economic Research Institute, and Michael Taft, Economist with SIPTU, share their thoughts.
They analyse the governments expected fiscal plans in Budget 2020 – the likely do little budget and the well flagged failures. The panel also outline the policies that the government should do in relation to Brexit proofing, child care, carbon tax, housing and energy poverty.
We also delve into the danger of austerity by stealth.
