Spending review: foresight or folly?

October 2010
People Management;10/28/2010, p14
The author reflects on the comprehensive spending review of the coalition government in Great Britain. He says that he felt depressed after chancellor George Osborne of the House of Commons said that he would impose a 81 billion British pounds cut in the 2014-15 budget, which means a 7% cut in the public funds received by Northern Ireland. He adds that the austerity package presented by Osborne is completely unfair as the budget cut he is proposing might bring back the country into another round of recession.
