America's Roundtable

Hon. Maurice McTigue | Erosion of the Rule of Law in America | Threats to Freedom of Speech | Advancing Reforms and Competition — Impacting America's States

February 13th, 2021

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation with Honorable Maurice McTigue, QSO, on the erosion of the rule of law in America, threats to freedom of speech, weakened democratic institutions and solutions in advancing principled policy reforms. The conversation brings to the forefront America's economy, the importance of competition among America's states, and rollout of the Biden administration's economic policies. Election integrity and the sanctity of the ballot is brought under the spotlight in light of widespread voter distrust of America's electoral process.

The Honorable Maurice McTigue is Vice President for Outreach at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. Mr. McTigue serves on the executive advisory board of the International Leaders Summit and delivered keynote addresses at The Jerusalem Leaders Summit in Israel, the International Leaders Summit’s events in Brussels, Eastern Europe and Washington, DC. Mr. McTigue has testified on Capitol Hill and published articles in many major media outlets, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, Bloomberg, US News & World Report, and The Chicago Tribune. In Washington, DC, McTigue advised the White House Office of Management and Budget and most federal agencies on issues of accountability and transparency and has consulted with legislators and governors in more than 30 states.

A former cabinet minister and member of parliament in his native New Zealand, McTigue was one of the architects of the “New Zealand miracle,” which dramatically reformed the country’s government and economy by implementing market-driven, progrowth policies. He later became New Zealand’s ambassador to Canada and received the prestigious Queen’s Service Order in recognition of his public service from Queen Elizabeth II.
