A Rejuvenated Industrial Policy for New Zealand

 Registration is closed for this event
Max Harris and Toby Moore will speak about a rejuvenated 'industrial policy' for New Zealand - a set of policies that might favour particular industries or sectors. They will discuss international thinking on industrial policy, past and present policy in New Zealand, and future proposals of particular relevance to the current Labour-led government. After they speak, Pete Hodgson and Isabelle Sin will offer brief commentary before we open up to discussion. The topic is of importance to anyone interested in the future role of the State in the economy - and in all parts of our lives.
