Financial journalist Bernard Hickey of interest.co.nz and Selwyn Pellett of the Productive Economy Council will discuss the need for a complete rethink of our approach to economic policy Monday evening in Wellington at Connolly Hall at 5:30pm. Besides writing regular opinion pieces and providing information on his site, Bernard Hickey writes a regular column in the Herald and has had some interesting things to say recently here titled “Plan to rebalance economy shredded” and here “Why we must dodge the currency elephants”. Selwyn Pellett will also discuss why we need to rebalance our economy towards exporting. They’re both interesting. More information and registration can be found at www.fabians.org.nz. The seminar will be repeated on Friday 16th in Auckland at the Decima Glenn Room, Auckland University business School at 6pm.
