TASC today launched a new briefing on Budget 2015, setting out the context. The global rise of econoimc inequality frames Ireland's choice of prioritising tax cuts or quality public services.

The Budget 2015 debate - especially the debate on cutting the higher rate of income tax - needs to  be seen in the context of Ireland's extreme pre-tax and pre-transfer inequality. 

In the presentation, TASC also outlines some of its detailed response to business lobbyists' arguments about taxation.
