A chocolate box of giveaways to stimulate growth, but are the centres sweet or sour?

This was meant to be a mini budget, but turned out to be the biggest tax cutting event for 50 years and largely an undoing of the previous Chancellor's budget in March. This is the government's big experiment on creating a new era of growth targeting 2.5%. But will it pay off?
