Resilient Economy Series Announced
Economic orthodoxy continues to fail New Zealand. This failure is systemic, not cyclical.
Despite this, prevailing political and economic orthodoxy has become almost immune from scrutiny. It seems that policymakers have yet to comprehend that the status quo will inevitably lead to economic collapse.
Effective government and policy-making requires free and robust debate of fresh ideas and the impact of the most recent â€˜financial crisis’ provides a stark opportunity to debate fundamentals of economic policy.
Through a series of lectures and seminars, the Fabians will provide a forum for critiquing prevailing economic orthodoxy and for advocacy of viable alternatives and reforms.
How New Zealand can map a course to a â€˜Resilient Economy‘ will be the focus of the NZ Fabian Society’s activities in 2010.
Bold Choices for a Better Future will be the provocative first seminar, entailing a pragmatic 360Ëš view of the economy and the options available to New Zealand. The seminar will be held in Auckland on March 14th, in Wellington on March 28th and in Christchurch on April 18th.
If you would like to help by distributing a flyer for the Bold Choices for a Better Future seminar (or just pinning it to a likely noticeboard), the flyer is available for download here.
