The coronavirus pandemic has forced governments around the world to borrow huge sums and push up their public debts in order to support businesses, protect incomes and save lives. How long will it be before the government can realistically balance the books?

Ben Chu (The Independent) and Lizzy Burden (The Telegraph) speak to Lord Robert Skidelsky (crossbench peer, Keynes biographer), and Paul Johnson (Institute for Fiscal Studies).
