Fiscal Sustainability & Economic Diversification

Reminder: Fabian Debate - Fiscal Sustainability and Economic Diversification - Monday 10 November

I would like to remind and invite you to hear Brian Easton and Wayne Mapp who will discuss and debate issues surrounding fiscal sustainability in superannuation and health care, and New Zealand's economic diversification. These are highly important issues that have long-term significance for the future of New Zealand's economy and people. While they have been discussed for many years we have not yet reached any consensus as to the best way to proceed.

Connolly Hall, Guildford Terrace, Wellington, Monday 10 November, 5:30pm. All welcome
