Rescuing the New Zealand Economy: Where We Went Wrong and how We Can Fix it

Front Cover
Craig Potton Pub., 2008 - New Zealand - 144 pages
Without really knowing why, many New Zealanders are baffled and disturbed by the current economic turmoil of our cripplingly high interest rates and a massively over-valued New Zealand dollar that is destroying the returns of our mainstay exporters. Author Bryan Gould shows how an extreme policy straitjacket has been responsible for decades of damage to our productive economy. But importantly, this book also looks beyond the recent, depressing past to a more optimistic vision for the future, and lays out a way forward that utilises a more balanced and humane view of what economic management is about. Ultmately, it is a plea for people to become better informed and to enter into the debate about how we can revive the New Zealand economy.
