The Government's redistributive exercise?

Description
Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay in the Birmingham Perspective: "Budgets are also political exercises, with the government suggesting that the tax and spending measures will boost the economy and help various sectors and the opposition castigating most measures as misguided or 'doing too little'. Thus, while the headlines indicate a 'no surprise' budget on the whole, we will have to assess the true impact more carefully as the various measures affect incentives and play out with the price system adjusting to the changes."
