Analysing the 2018 Budget are Professor Tim Evans, Professor of Business and Political Economy at Middlesex Business School and financial journalist and broadcaster Ed Bowsher. In conversation with Simon Rose they discuss what they feel was a heavily political Budget. What did he get right and what wrong? Is this the end of austerity? Should the Chancellor have kept back more of his unexpected windfall? How can the extra money for the NHS be most wisely spent? Will his "digital services tax" redress the balance between online and bricks and mortar retailers? Should more have been done for the environment? Should Philip Hammond give up joke-telling? All this and more in our expert analysis.
