We can choose an Equitable Route to Recovery - TASC

Posted on 2013/10/11 by pcole at 13:14

213802744_640.jpg

There is a strong public interest in lowering the deficit and controlling the extent of the national debt but a narrow focus on deficit reduction through cuts would be misguided.

Official policy on addressing the public finances has ignored the international evidence that a more balanced approach is required to closing the deficit and recovering the economy.

The multiplier effect of cuts has been higher than anticipated and fiscal consolidation has had a substantial contractionary effect on growth and employment.

Tax increases will harm investment and enterprise - John Bryan IFA

Posted on 2013/10/07 by pcole at 22:23

IFA Pres John Bryan

Ahead of the Budget, the Government has decisions to make regarding agriculture which will determine how well the sector is positioned to contribute to economic recovery.

Following two years of growth, farm incomes fell significantly in 2012. The main factor affecting farm incomes and profitability was the dreadful weather, which resulted in a reduction in output in some commodities and an increase in input.

The difficulties continued into this year, with fodder shortages experienced across the country resulting in increased feed costs and pressures on farm viability.
