 Registration is closed for this event

Zoom Meetup: How do we pay for Covid-19? 10am–noon Saturday 23 May 2020 Major recession with very high unemployment is looming just as we need massive investment to fix the climate crisis, protect our health, rebuild run-down infrastructure, and transform an unequal society. The government has spent $12 billion in immediate relief and much more will be needed to help New Zealanders through. In this Zoom meetup, we’ll be joined by economist and public policy expert Dr Geoff Bertram to examine the critical issues of how we pay for all of this, what role institutions might play, and how we should manage the economy in a completely changed world. RSVP to Martin Taylor, region1.epg@gmail.com, or sign up online at https://fabians.org.nz/. We’ll send you the Zoom link and info so you can join the discussion. Time: 10am–noon Saturday 23 May. Organised by the Region 1 (Auckland/Northland) economic policy group and the NZ Fabian Society. Dr Bertram is an associate in the Institute of Government and Policy Studies at Victoria University, having previously been a Senior Lecturer in Economics in the School of Economics and Finance at Victoria University.
