Budget 2024

Tax and spend fiscal plan will inhibit growth

Robert Asselin applauds the recent federal budget for investments in child care, skills, life biosciences, and clean technology. However, his concerns for a lack of a long-term growth plan is also highlighted in an article by Politico.

“After doubling our federal debt in only six years, and spending close to a trillion dollars, not moving the needle on long-term growth would be the worst possible legacy of this budget.”
