Ideas for 25 October 2009: Roger Kerr

From Ideas, 11:05 am on 25 October 2009

Business Roundtable executive director, the late Roger Kerr (1945-2011) spoke about the people and thinkers who influenced his ideas with Chris Laidlaw in 2009. The list is a mixture of the predictable and the surprising: Enlightenment economist Adam Smith, Roger's brother Alan (a surgeon who regularly spends time in Gaza volunteering his services), the philosopher Jean Paul Sartre, former Telecom boss Rod Deane, Shakespeare, economist Bryce Wilkinson and prominent American legal scholar Richard Epstein.
