Intergenerational Well-being and Public Policy (U3A)


Event Details


Economists now use measures besides GDP to evaluate society’s success: social, environmental, sustainable and social wellbeing. What factors have caused the current unfairness between our generation and the young? What can be done via public policy to restore intergenerational wellbeing?

Girol Karacaoglu is an economist who is the Head of the School of Government at Victoria University of Wellington. Before that he was the Chief Economist at Treasury. He and his wife Angela own a house in Queenstown, and he attended the workshop on Tackling Poverty in NZ here in December 2015.

This talk is presented by U3A. $5 admission.
