Abstract

George Osborne, the chancellor of the exchequer, has delivered the first Conservative budget in nearly 20 years and used it to announce plans to introduce a compulsory living wage, cut the welfare bill and cap public sector pay. He also sought to take more people out of inheritance tax and recoup more tax from the wealthy. Expectations are for annual growth at more than 2% for the next five years and for the creation of one million extra jobs by 2020. Here, we bring you live, expert reaction to the budget from academics in a variety of fields.
