Chancellor Philip Hammond got out his red box again last week, to let us know how the country’s finances are – or aren’t – holding up, and what the Government’s going to be doing with its money this year.

The headlines were mixed, so what should our take-away be?

Will the Chancellor’s proposals be enough to make our economy fit for the future”? And with Brexit looming, is the Government doing enough to deal with the country’s economic problems?

This week, NEF’s David Powell steps in for regular host Ayeisha Thomas-Smith. Dave is joined by Kate Bell, Head of Economic and Social Affairs at the Trades Union Congress, and Miatta Fahnbulleh, the new CEO of the New Economics Foundation.
