The government’s budget for 2019 was announced yesterday afternoon by minister of finance Grant Robertson, who delivered the publication. The focus seems to be on vulnerable communities, Kiwi’s well-being, among other priorities, with a trajectory towards social issues such as mental health, addiction, and poverty in the budgets financial forecast. While this is good to see in many ways, it can’t be said that everyone will be happy about these economic decisions. Now for someone with a very low understanding of economics, Louis had the pleasure of speaking with Shamubeel Eaqub; an experienced independent economist & commentator, who made economics very easy for Louis. Here he is, breaking down the budget.
