Event description
Panel Discussion with audience Q+A on debt, our COVID-19 recovery, and where to from here

About this Event

Join us at Pocket Bar for a panel discussion with economics and finance experts to talk about Government debt, COVID-19 recovery, and what's next.

OUR TOPIC

Over the last year, the New Zealand Government has borrowed heavily to offset the economic and social impacts of COVID-19 and so far, the big gamble seems to have paid off with GDP bouncing back strongly.

But uncertainty remains. What does a k-shaped recovery look like? Does it even exist and what does all this extra debt mean for tax payers long-term?

To discuss this we'll be joined by Maxim Institute Senior Researcher Julian Wood and Dr Lyndon Drake at Pocket Bar in Grey Lynn, Thursday 15 April.

In classic MIC Series style, there will be plenty of time for your questions, so come at 6:30pm to order a drink and food, and our conversation will start at 7pm.

RSVP now, as capacity is limited.
