Fabian Debate: Fiscal Sustainability and Economic Diversity

Fabian Debate - Fiscal Sustainability and Economic Diversification

I would like to invite you to hear Brian Easton and Wayne Mapp discuss and debate issues surrounding fiscal sustainability in superannuation and health care, and New Zealand's economic diversification.

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

Narratives from the 2014 election - what did we learn? – Podcast
This is available on the Fabian Society website in the Publications section - you can link to it here. Our thanks are due to Catherine Hutton of Radio New Zealand for the recording - her 26 October Insight programme "Turning Labour Around" is here.
