Max Rashbrooke - The Well-Being Budget: a revolution or a damp squib?

 Registration is closed for this event

The Labour-led coalition government is calling this its Well-Being Budget. Indeed 'well-being', as the nearest thing it has to a coherent ideology, is central to the way this government thinks about and uses its power. Does it represent a new direction, or is it a repackaging of the same old, same old?


Max Rashbrooke is a well-known author, academic and journalist, writing on politics, economics and social issues. He is the author of Government for the Public Good: The Surprising Science of Large-Scale Collective Action, published by Bridget Williams Books (BWB) in September 2018.


He is also the author of Wealth and New Zealand, and edited the best-selling Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis, which is to be republished in updated form in late 2018, also by BWB. He is a senior associate of the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, and as a journalist has written for outlets in Britain and New Zealand including the Guardian, the National Business Review and Metro. He has twice been the recipient of the Bruce Jesson Senior Journalism Award, and was a 2015 Winston Churchill Fellow.
