‘We’ve had a decade of deficits’: The impact on the budget

Chief Economist Deloitte Access Economics Chris Richardson tells Ross Greenwood it is an “unusual combination” but there are positives.

“There’s good news in jobs and there’s even better news in profits and that combination means… even though the economy’s worse the budget’s better.

Mr Richardson discusses the importance of more tax cuts.
