About the topic:

A month after the British vote, can we start to sort out facts from fantasy, with respect to the Economics of the situation? Will this vote be seen as the historical marker for Peak Globalization, signalling a need for what some mainstream economists are calling a new “responsible nationalism” to address the dissatisfaction of the indigenous working and lower middle classes of Britain, the US and, perhaps, New Zealand? How do these pressing challenges mesh with  longer term issues of climate change and the future of work?


About the speaker:

Tim Hazledine has been a professor of economics at the University of Auckland since 1992. Before that he taught at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, with previous stints at Queen’s Ontario, Balliol College Oxford and the University of Warwick – his PhD alma mater – following degrees at Otago and Canterbury.  His microeconomic interests focus on competition and policy in aviation markets. His macro interests are in the generation and distribution of incomes, in NZ and around the world.
