Description

This timely book lays bare the failures of the free market economics and its associated political doctrine of 'neoliberalism' which, the author claims, have been very damaging to New Zealand over the past three decades. The Failure of Free Market Economics and the Future of New Zealand examines the country's economy and society, trade pact negotiations, and the critical twenty-first-century issues of climate change and natural resource depletion. The book identifies the limitations of market-based transactions, and the significance of the 'common good'. By contrasting the different economic and political claims in favour of the free market, the mixed economy, and the requirements of the global ecosystem, the book points towards policies for a future for New Zealand that is more just, democratic and sustainable.
