Max Rashbrooke - Bridges Both Ways: Transforming the openness of New Zealand government - WN

Max will discuss his new report, Bridges Both Ways: Transforming the openness of New Zealand government which argues that our government needs to be made profoundly more transparent, accountable and open to citizens' direct input, and sets out five 'big ideas'  for doing just that. One of those ideas involves opening up political party funding - through a tough cap on private donations and making public funding radically transparent - in order to address concerns about the influence of wealthy donors. Other ideas included a new national holiday dedicated to discussing politics!

Max Rashbrooke is an author, academic and journalist working in Wellington, New Zealand, where he writes about politics, finance and social issues.
