Women’s Budget Group reports

April 15, 2014

I had the unusual experience this year of watching the Budget at the LSE alongside a group of other feminist academics from around the country.  After we had watched the speech and discussed our first reactions, we split up the Budget according to our various specialisms and went off to do some rather fuller analysis than the insta-punditry that was going on in the papers.

You may have your own views on whether it’s better to hit the reporting cycle while the Budget itself is still news, or to think about it for a bit longer and come up with a reasoned response. ¬†Personally I think you have to do both, but anyway, here’s the advert: the Women’s Budget Group analysis of this year’s Budget can be found here.

(Which bits, if any, were written by me, I leave as an exercise for the class!)
