Rent-seeking, the ‘game of mates’, and the stuff-ups of economic reform
Are governments and their bureaucracies ensuring that Australia’s businesses give their customers a good deal, or are they just helping businesses live an easier, less competitive life at their customers’ expense? And what do politicians and top bureaucrats get out of it?
Don’t miss our first event for 2018 as our Autumn program commences at Souths on Wednesday 14th March.
Ross Gittins, who is also a patron of the Newcastle Institute will be speaking from 6pm and everybody is welcome.
For 2018 we have made a decision to request a contribution of $10 for attendees. This follows many years of this being only $5 and will assist us to ensure that we can continue to deliver a program of events.
To assist our planning, you can now pre-register for our events so that you simply need to be ‘checked in’ at the door. To register for this event, please look for the registration link on the right.
For the first time in 2018 we are also offering the opportunity to become a member of the Newcastle Institute. Just click the ‘Join Now’ button. Once they have received notice that their membership has been approved, members are entitled to free entry at our regular events and can also use the Registration button to let us know that they’ll be coming by choosing the ‘Member’ option to register. You can, of course, still simply come along on the night.
Whichever way you choose to engage with our events, we look forward to you sharing in what looks like being a very interesting program of events in 2018. Please help us to get the word out regarding our offerings by sharing on social media or forwarding this email to your contacts. You can also share the event notice on Facebook.
We look forward to seeing you. For details of the remaining events in our Autumn program, click here.
