Brian Easton will introduce the Fabian Society Light-handed Regulation Series at Connolly Hall, Guildford Terrace, Wellington, on Monday 10 September at 5:30pm. Brian’s presentation will look at light-handed regulation and its effect on work safety, finance sector, energy sector and construction and building.
Brian will argue that light-handed regulation has led systematically to a lack of safety in the workplace, monopolistic profits, the loss of private savings, and badly constructed buildings which have caused widespread economic waste, serious personal misfortune and even death. Brian will argue for a modernising left approach to regulation as a response to the above disasters. His paper is a significant contribution to what is an extremely important issue. If you wish to come, please register here.

All will be at Connolly Hall at 5:30pm.
