5 graphs which reveal why Osborne's obsession with ending the deficit is economic vandalism
The plan for a budget surplus law is not financial prudence, it's economic vandalism - Ben Wray explains why
CHANCELLOR of the Exchequer George Osborne is proposing a new law that will make budget surpluses at "normal economic times" legally binding, so that Government's are not allowed to run a deficit.
It's the height of fiscal reponsibility, isn't it? A budget surplus - taking in more in taxes than you spend - will mean public finances are safe and secure and we won't have another economic crash.
