What’s happening tomorrow night at the Auckland Uni Economics Group? Here’s your update:
This week we are excited to be joined by Professor Robert MacCulloch who will answer the question: Why do Governments Regulate?
This question has been a controversial one among economists for several centuries. Do governments regulate for the public interest? Or rather to protect the interests of “big business” that have captured politicians?
Robert maintains neither of these views is consistent with the evidence, arguing instead that regulations are imposed as a form of punishment on capitalists when they are perceived to be undeserving.
Date: Thursday, August 21
Location: Case Room Two, Level Zero, University of Auckland Business School
We look forward to seeing you all there!
