How much comes in? Where does the money go? How big is the deficit and what is happening to it? What does the government need to borrow and how much is debt increasing? What is inflation doing to the public finances? Why are taxes going up rather than down?
Transparency in public finances has frequently meant the provision of ever increasing amounts of financial information, without a focus on the need to make that information understandable. As a result, most of us know little about our government and how it is financed.
Simply UK Government Finances 2022/23 aims to remedy that situation by providing a clear and concise summary of the UK’s fiscal position, using vivid and colourful charts to clearly explain how the public finances fit together. It explains where the money comes from and where it goes, how the shortfall between tax and spending is financed and how debt is increasing, as well as providing an overview of the UK economy, population and the tax and welfare systems.
In a handy compact A5 format, Simply UK is an indispensable companion for everyone wanting to understand how our government works.
