BWB Talks: Wealth, Wellbeing, and Capital Gains Tax: What Next?

17 June 2019

Max Rashbrooke in conversation with Lisa Marriott

Despite New Zealand’s significant levels of inequality, the prospect of a capital-gains tax now appears remote. Join Max Rashbrooke and Lisa Marriott as they discuss what’s next for tackling wealth inequality in New Zealand.

A leading voice on wealth disparity, Rashbrooke is a writer and academic based in Wellington. His books—including Wealth and New Zealand—have helped transform our understanding of income and wealth inequality. Marriott is Professor of Taxation at Victoria University of Wellington and co-author of Sugar, Rum, and Tobacco: Taxes and Public Health in New Zealand.

In partnership with Bridget Williams Books.
