The Economics of Decency

Many New Zealanders are now asking serious questions about the effect on our society of the sweeping economic reforms of the past decade or more. Has all the pain been worthwhile? Has the cult of the individual made us a happier people? Are we really all that much better off economically? Surely by now we should be experiencing the long-promised positive outcomes.

At the forefront of this debate is controversial Auckland University Economics Professor Tim Hazledine. In this book he analyses what Roger Douglas, Ruth Richardson and their successors have done to New Zealand, and explains why it hasn't panned out as planned. The reformers got it wrong - they actually don't understand how a successful market economy functions

Taking New Zealand Seriously is a down-to-earth book with a simple message: you can't split off economic affairs from everything else. The decent economy and the decent society are inextricably intertwined. How we live and behave towards each other is as important in rebuilding a fair and prosperous economic community as it is in the other areas of our lives
