Event Details

The New Zealand Initiative welcomes you to a panel discussion on the rise of ‘lifestyle regulations’. While we may be used to policies that address the negative outcomes of smoking, we now see policies aimed at what you eat and drink too.
But will current and proposed policies actually achieve their intended outcomes? And even if they did, at what expense?


Join us for a discussion with:

  • Jenesa Jeram, Policy Analyst, The New Zealand Initiative

  • Dr Girol Karacaoglu, Chief Economist and Deputy Secretary, The Treasury

  • Marama Fox, Co-leader, Māori Party

  • Jamie Whyte, Author and Fellow, Institute of Economic Affairs
