Double Take: Economics Editor Ben Chu argues why the government needs to end austerity

Double Take is a podcast in which we take another look at one of our comment pieces with the author.

This week we are joined by The Independent's Economics Editor Ben Chu and Managing Director (and former Economics Editor) Sean O'Grady, who hold very different views on whether the Conservatives are right to bring austerity to an end.

Find Ben's original piece here and Sean's here.
