A well-designed tax system is a powerful tool to protect our environment and support our people. New Zealand’s current system is not getting us there. Kiwis experience high economic inequality and it is harming our well-being. We need to repair our public services and our welfare system and change our economy so that it runs fairer, cleaner and greener. A better tax system can help.

But to get the most from tax, we need to talk about it. In the first event of this series, three of NZ’s pre-eminent tax and welfare experts explore what we can do to make our tax and transfer system rebalance the scales so that no-one is left behind.

Speakers:

Andrea Black, Tax Commentator  – inequality and the Tax Working Group
Michael Fletcher, IGPS Senior Lecturer – welfare and tax
Max Rashbrooke, Author – how to tax wealth
