Raise Taxes Or Cut Expenditure?

UK’s Budget 2021, which was unveiled on Wednesday, has been labelled a ‘spend now, pay later’ budget. Chancellor Rishi Sunak is extending many economic measures including the furlough scheme but is also raising corporation tax in 2023 from 19% to 23%. Kenneth Wattret, Chief Europe Economist at IHS Markit, gives us his views on whether the Budget will help recover the economy, the worst in 300 years.
