Budget 2021 Analysis and Critique

Posted on Wednesday, 14 October 2020

Less than 24 hours after Ministers Donohoe and McGrath stood up in the Convention Centre to deliver the Budget speech, Social Justice Ireland published the first full and comprehensive analysis of Budget 2021.

Below, you can read our analysis, or view the video of our post-Budget 2021 seminar, delivered the morning after Budget Day.

Did government take the correct fiscal stance? What is it doing to reduce poverty and inequality? Does the Budget do enough to address climate change? How is the government dealing with the housing crisis? How will Ireland’s most vulnerable fare in Budget 2021? These questions and more are addressed in our detailed 24-page breakdown of key tax and spending measures for 2021.
