Economics Group joins with the Management Consulting Group for Industry Insight-7pm, Case Room 3

Hello all.

This week we are going to combine with the Management Consulting Group as they have a great speaker on around the same time we usually meet.  Come and see Roger Kerr speaking at 7pm Case Room 3.  This is part of their Industry Insight Seminars where they talk to Industry Professionals on a range of topics.
The first Industry Insight event will be held on the 29th March, Case Room 3, OGGB starting at 7pm, and finishing at approximately 8:30pm.  The “industry” in focus for this event is actually going to be the NZ economy, with the speaker being Roger Kerr – CEO NZ Business Round Table.  The topics to be discussed are…

1. Impact of the Christchurch Earthquake on the NZ Economy2. NZ’s poor private/public sector savings record
3. The effect of NZ’s ETS on the economy
4. Whether the current welfare system is helping or hindering NZ’s economic growth
5. The case for smaller government and greater economic freedom

The speaker will give a brief overview of a topic – his personal feelings and opinions.  We will then open up to questions from the audience.  This will take up the majority of the time.  Questions can either be to the speaker, or to a fellow audience member.  In addition, the speaker may also ask the audience questions.  People are encouraged to challenge ones they disagree with, and support ones they do agree with.  Once the topic has been concluded, I will introduce the next topic, and the process will repeat itself. This is a great chance to join in with others asking similar economics questions.

Hope to see you there.
