Committee on Budgetary Oversight
Pre-Budget 2022 Scrutiny: Irish Fiscal Advisory Council
I have a couple of questions. What do the witnesses see as the biggest threat to the stability of our economy in the foreseeable future? Is it the likely potential change in corporate profits tax? Is it inflation, which appears to be an issue? Is it the extent of that will likely have to be undertaken in order to recover from Covid-19, and to recover from Brexit, if it is possible to do? What are the potential impacts of taxation, inflation and borrowing on our economy?
