Economy

It’s expected that the UK government will have to spend £104 billion this year alone to prop up the economy, and it’s being reported that it’s already thinking about paying for the coronavirus bill through wage freezes and tax increases.

We’re joined by economist John Weeks author of the 'Debt Delusion'.
