Bill Rosenberg - What would a people's Budget look like? - Wed 14 June
The election-year Budget is always a big part of a Government’s campaign for re-election. If it’s possible, there’s even more spin than usual. The bank economists and the business lobbyists take every opportunity to tell us "it’s good for us because it’s great for business!” It is possible to see it very differently.
Bill Rosenberg and the Council of Trade Unions want to put a people’s perspective on the Budget. What has the Budget done for families, jobs and a viable future? Will it cool the housing market, build infrastructure, create safe and sustaining work for the future of all Kiwis? Bill will present a different analysis, examine the Government’s priorities and look at what needs to be done.
Bill Rosenberg is an economist and Director of Policy, Council of Trade Unions since 2009. He holds a B.Com in Economics, a BSc in Mathematics and a PhD in Mathematical Psychology. He was previously Deputy Director, University Centre for Teaching and Learning at the University of Canterbury, a Commissioner on TEC, and a member of the Regional Land Transport Committee of Environment Canterbury. Bill is widely published on labour issues, globalisation and trade and has been an active trade unionist for 35 years including the Tramways Union and Association of University Staff where he was National President for several years.
