Social Justice Ireland ANALYSIS AND CRITIQUE- Budget 2010
The unfair and breathtakingly unjust decisions made in Budget 2010 will damage Ireland’s economic development and social development.
This Budget is anti-family, anti-poor and anti-children. Government chose to reduce the income going to large numbers of Ireland’s poorest people while wasting money on a useless scrappage scheme that will have no significant impact on emissions but will see most of the money going to overseas manufactures.
In what appears to be an ideologically fixated approach to Budget 2010 Government has placed its faith in the failed neo-liberal economic model which caused many if not most of the current economic problems not just in Ireland but across the world.
