Here’s yet another great event to put in your calendar, a guest lecturer from Canada speaking at the Auckland Uni Economics Group


    This week we take a slight detour to look at another branch from our family tree of economics.  That branch is the school of Public Choice and we are thrilled to have leading the discussion Peter Holle, founding President of the Canadian think tank Frontier Centre for Public Policy.
    Peter will talk about the theory underlying Public Choice and highlight the implications for public policymakers of this influential school of economics.  Public Choice is a branch of economics that studies the decision-making behaviour of voters, politicians and government officials from the perspective of economic theory.  It can be considered as a bridge between economics and political science.
    Peter has worked extensively with public sector reform and has provided advisory services to various governments across Canada and the United States.  His publications have appeared in various newspapers and journals including dozens of newspapers, the National Post and the Wall Street Journal. He has a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.  We are delighted that Peter is able to speak to us during his short visit to New Zealand and we look forward to seeing you next Tuesday evening at 6:30pm.

    Date: Tuesday 12 October
    Time: 6:30pm
    Room: University of Auckland Business School, Owen G Glenn Building, Room 317 (Level 3)

All welcome!
Fraser, Julian and Peter
