In conjunction with the Haberdashers’ Company, Cazenove Capital agreed to continue its sponsorship of the Schroders Economics Prize competition and the following question was set for 2020:
Governments are rapidly increasing their deficits and debt to support the economy. Running a government deficit is i) bad for the economy and ii) will require taxes to go up in the future. Discuss each point separately.
