Event Details

The University of Auckland Economics Group is proud to bring you a presentation by one of New Zealand's leading thinkers, Dr Oliver Hartwich of The New Zealand Initiative.

About the event:
As the Euro crisis is now in its fourth year, policies to keep the common currency alive have become increasingly complex. The European Financial Stability Facility, the European Stability Mechanism, Longer Term Refinancing Operations, Fiscal Compacts and Banking Unions have however failed to calm nervous markets. 
What started with a bailout for Greece has spread to Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus. It is likely that even more countries will ask for financial assistance in the future.
In this talk, Dr Hartwich will step back from the technicalities of the debate and ask how Europe got into this crisis - and what options remain to deal with its impacts.

About Dr Hartwich:
Dr Oliver Hartwich is the Executive Director of The New Zealand Initiative, an independent public policy think tank formed by the merger of the Business Roundtable and the New Zealand Institute, and which is supported by chief executives of major New Zealand businesses.
Before joining the Initiative, he was a Research Fellow at the Centre for Independent Studies (Sydney), the Chief Economist at Policy Exchange (London), and an advisor in the UK House of Lords. His publications have covered a wide range of topics, including housing, transport, local government, and global economic issues. He holds a Master’s degree in Economics and Business Administration and a Ph.D. in Law from Bochum University (Germany).
Dr Hartwich is a frequent media commentator and writes a popular Business Spectator column. His articles have been published by major newspapers in Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand.
