LATE Innovate Economy: The Bellbirds / Jan Hellriegel / Tim Hazeldine / Susan St John / Brian Gaynor

On Thursday 1 April Auckland Museum's LATE 02: Innovate Economy brings together three of the country's leading economic thinkers - Tim Hazeldine, Susan St John and Brian Gaynor - and asks them to dissect New Zealand's financial history, then mark out their vision for a prosperous economic future. The evening also features music from kiwi super-group The Bellbirds and songstress Jan Hellriegel.

Tim Hazeldine works as a professor at Auckland University's economics department. The author of a number of publications, his areas of interest include the impacts of New Zealand's economic liberalisation and alternatives for our trade and growth.

Associate Professor Susan St John is co-director of Auckland University's Retirement Policy and Research Centre. Her areas of research interest include taxation, pensions, accident compensation, family law and economics and income support.

Brian Gaynor is one of New Zealand's most well known investment analysts. Brian also works as a business media columnist, and is currently the Executive Director of the Milford Aggressive Fund and the Aon KiwiSaver Milford Aggressive Fund.

Performing on the night is The Bellbirds, a band formed in mid-2009 by Don McGlashan and Sean Donnelly of SJD fame. The Bellbirds, who recently played to packed-out crowds at the Womad festival, create melodies and harmonies of a 60s baroque pop sensibility, combined with bittersweet lyrics.

Also taking the stage is singer Jan Hellriegel, whose 2009 release All Grown Up was amongst the year's most critically acclaimed albums.
