ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: The Roger in Rogernomics

Your chance this week at Auckland Uni Econ Group to question a former politician whose economic programme of thirty years ago still casts a long shadow over the political landscape today.

Hi everyone,

Welcome back from the study break. We have some great speakers lined up for the Economics Group starting this week.
This Thursday we are delighted to have join us a very significant figure from New Zealand's economic history - Roger Douglas.
As Minister of Finance in the Labour government from 1984 to 1988 Roger Douglas implemented a series of economic reforms often referred to as ‘Rogernomics.’ These reforms are still the subject of lasting controversy.
This Thursday evening, Roger will paint us a picture of what the New Zealand economy was like before he became Minister of Finance; the motivation behind and the nature of his reforms; and briefly mention what further reforms he feels are needed to ensure future economic growth for New Zealand.
Following the presentation there will be a period for questions and discussion.
    Date: Thursday, 1 May
    Time: 6-7pm
    Location: Case Room Two, Level 0, University of Auckland Business School, Grafton Rd
                            (plenty of parking in the basement)
This is an exceptional opportunity to hear from and question a major figure in New Zealand’s economic history.
We look forward to seeing you there.
