Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Inflation: Discussion (10 Nov 2021)

Neasa Hourigan: I was asking that question in the context of the review of the NDP and the new commitments to retrofitting. I lived through the 2008 and 2009 crash as an architect.

This is our first of three sessions on inflation. It has been...

Obviously, I understand as inflation rises, our capital...
