New Zealand’s Failing Economy

New Zealand’s Failing Economy

With Dr Oliver Hartwich

Presentation on 22nd March 2023, Warkworth.

Video recording  of Dr. Hartwich’s presentation including Q&A

Our Keynote Speaker – Dr. Oliver Hartwich from The NZ Initiative, was very well received. He made recommendations for de-centralization, top-heavy bureaucratic Public Service cutbacks, more “think tanks” nationwide, plus Oliver shared many other valid insights. The Q&A session was robust, informative and lasted for over 45 minutes.

Highlights included:

*  Prior to this event, Dr. Hartwich was interviewed by Leighton Smith on Newstalk ZB and by Paul Brennan on the new Reality Check Radio (RCR).

*  We had 100 attendees during our first weeknight public event, of which some 60% drove more than 20 minutes to join.

*  Special thanks to our first minor sponsor with Wealth Morning. They did an excellent job promoting to their membership along with three Prize Draws valued at over $300 on the night.

If you find value in these educational public meetings – discussing critical NZ topics – your financial support is needed and appreciated.
