The New Lynn Labour Electorate Committee is hosting a debate this Friday where the subject is whether a Universal Transaction Tax, also known as a Robin Hood tax, would benefit the economy.
Because of a family bereavement David Cunliffe will not be able to attend. In his place will be Peter Nielson, former Labour MP and economist and former CEO of the New Zealand Business Council for Sustainable Development. Other members of the team arguing the affirmative will be Jane Kelsey, Social Conscience Extraordinaire, and progressive Economist and commentator Rod Oram.
Arguing for the negative will be Deborah Russell, Tax Lecturer blogger and future Labour MP, Nigel Haworth who is the President of the Labour Party and Shamubeel Eaqub who is a well known Economist and media commentator.
It promises to be a very entertaining and stimulating event.
Tickets are $75.00. Concessions rates for members apply. All proceeds to the New Lynn LEC.
