It's the beginning of the end for the current Government and their final act may well be Budget 2016, which Michael Noonan will announce next Tuesday. So political as well as economic considerations will play a large role in the decisions made. But which will win out? Today's panel discusses the options open to the Government including a reduction in the USC, changes in how corporations are taxed, increases in duty on old favourites petrol, tobacco and alcohol, and how much, or little, scope there is to satisfy the demands of the various ministries. They also look at what can be done to ease the pressure in the housing market. Host Ciaran Hancock is joined by Economics Editor Arthur Beesley, Political Editor Stephen Collins and economist and former ERSI research professor John Fitzgerald. Inside Business is sponsored by Irish Life. The podcast is produced by Sinead O’Shea and researched by Declan Conlon.
