ECONOMICS FOR REAL PEOPLE: The Rise, Fall and Modern Revival of Industry Policy in NZ


Here’s what’s up this Thursday evening at the Auckland Uni Econ Group. Should be a cracker!

Hi everyone,
Remember the Trekka (right)?
Remember Think Big?
Professor Tony Endres does – and many other failures of government “industry policy” besides.
We are very excited to have Professor Endres presenting to us at this week’s Economics Group seminar. Tony Endres is a Professor of Economics at the University of Auckland, whose research interests include New Zealand economic history and the history of economic thought.
This Thursday evening, Tony will be presenting on the topic “The Rise, Fall and Modern Revival of Industry Policy in NZ”. Professor Endres will discuss the structure of the New Zealand economy over the past century, looking at some of the policies and circumstances that have determined this structure and growth.
Tony is a lively and engaging speaker so come prepared for what will be a very interesting presentation.
    Date: Thursday, 27 March
    Time: 6pm-7pm
    Location: Case Room 4, Level 0, Business School, Owen G. Glenn Building, Grafton Rd
All are welcome to attend (plenty of parking in the Business School basement, entrance off Grafton Rd).
We look forward to seeing you there!
