“The New Zealand Experience” is the topic of the next Old Town Hall lecture tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. The event features an overview of New Zealand’s radical economic and political reforms, and lessons for American decision makers interested in achieving similar results in the United States.

Maurice McTigue, a member of the New Zealand Parliament and Cabinet, presents the lecture. He has played an instrumental role in implementing dramatic reform in areas such as taxation, education, and transportation in the country. McTigue’s experience and success introducing market process ideas in New Zealand are an inspiration for those who are interested in applying the lessons of the market to critical public policy problems in the United States.

The lecture is held on the second floor of Old Town Hall, at the corner of University Drive and Main Street in the City of Fairfax. It is free and open to the public, and refreshments are provided. Free parking is available in the lot on the corner of University Drive and North Street. For more information, call Traci Claar at x38846.
