After two decades obsessing over budget surpluses, Australia is entering a new normal with a massive run-up in government debt to stop the economy from flatlining during the coronavirus crisis. Should we be worried and how will we ever pay it back?
On this episode of The Dismal Science podcast, Chief Economist Mark Thirlwell and Head of Content Ivan Ah Sam discuss whether the government's coronavirus debt will become a problem, plus the latest forecasts from the International Monetary Fund for global growth during the crisis.
