The Sharing Economy - Its promise for Productivity, and challenges for Regulation


Speaker: Professor Dr Justus Haucap


Topic: Around the world we are seeing new technologies like Uber and AirBnB disrupting established markets and industries, and the way they are regulated. These technologies promise the potential of huge consumer benefits, but not without risks. Existing regulations can impede these technologies, or in some cases even accelerate their uptake - either way creating winners and losers. Professor Haucap, shares insights on these questions, and discusses how they are arising and being addressed in Europe and beyond.


Bio: Professor Dr Justus Haucap is LEANZ's 2017 Friedlander Fellow, visiting from the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics (DICE). He has served as a Chairman of the German Monopolies Commission, and is acting Vice Chair of the council of scientific advisors to Germany's Federal Networks Agency. He brings a wealth of experience in the application of research-based economics to competition and regulation issues in a wide range of sectors (including in New Zealand, where he once worked at Treasury). While in New Zealand, Professor Haucap will be presenting numerous public and private seminars on policy-relevant questions.


From 5:30 p.m. for refreshments with a 6:00 p.m. seminar start on Tuesday 7 March 2017 at Chapman Tripp, Level 17, 10 Customhouse Quay, Wellington
