Public policy founded on love for future generations

From Saturday Morning, 9:35 am on 27 February 2021

How would we design, implement and evaluate public policy if it were based on our love for future generations?

This is the question at the centre of Dr Girol Karacaoglu's new book Love You: Public policy for intergenerational wellbeing.

Now the Head of the School of Government at Victoria University, Dr Karacaoglu was born in Turkey and studied in Hawaii, gaining a PhD in Economics and a Master's degree in Business Administration, before moving to New Zealand.  

He held senior roles in the banking industry and became chief economist at Treasury in 2012, before taking up his current role at VUW in 2016.
