Ryan Hoey, a politics student at Queen’s University Belfast. I got in touch with Ryan after he wrote a piece for https://www.challengesni.com/ entitled “Coronavirus Vindicates Austerity”.

I was curious to explore the arguments he laid out in his piece, especially given the noise coming from the left about how the spending commitments made by the government to keep the economy running are proving that the magic money tree exists.

We had a really interesting chat, but most of the talk is centred on the article, so for full comprehension I’d recommend you read it first – the link is in the description.
