PJ O'Rourke Speaks for CIS at 25th Anniversary John Bonython Lecture and Dinner

With more than 1 million words of trenchant journalism under his byline and more citations in "The Penguin Dictionary of Humorous Quotations" than any living writer, PJ O'Rourke has established himself as America's premier political satirist. He is the best-selling author of 12 books, including "Parliament of Whores," "Give War a Chance," "Eat the Rich," "The CEO of the Sofa" and "Peace Kills."

Of his 2007 release, "On the Wealth of Nations," Publishers Weekly writes: "A witty Cliff Notes, with plenty of challenges for the armchair economist to wrap his head around." Both Time and The Wall Street Journal have labeled O'Rourke "the funniest writer in America."

Covering current events with the skill and discipline of an investigative reporter, O'Rourke adds a unique spin that has earned him a reputation as a modern-day Will Rogers. Known as a hard-bitten, cigar-smoking conservative, he, in fact, bashes all political persuasions. As he puts it, "Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys." Whether dealing with the inner workings of Washington bureaucracy or the shifting political and economic sands of the new world order, O'Rourke proves himself to be a savvy guide to national and world affairs. His razor sharp insights never fail to inform and entertain.

For one evening only O'Rourke will offer Auckland some humour and hope on the dark subject of the global financial crisis, toasting the wisdom of Adam Smith.
