By Clydesdale, Greg
Over the last thirty years, political correctness has infiltrated every aspect of our lives. It is not just annoying - it has undermined economic growth and the welfare of many New Zealanders.
The process has been so gradual and consistent that many New Zealanders have not not...iced how previously unpopular views have become institutionalised. Ideology and mythology now shape government action. In the process, we have the lost the ability to question and debate. Genuine tolerance has been lost.
This book examines political correctness in a number of guises, from the arts, paternalism, diversity, immigration, to Pacific and Maori poverty.
Most important, Dr Clydesdale explains how political correctness has undermined information flows and policy advice, with the consequence that the economy has travelled a slow growth path. The Clark-Key governments were years of wasted opportunity.
Dr Clydesdale argues that unless we return to the real world, we will continue on this slow growth path, and our global rankings will decline as countries in Asia and Eastern Europe pass us by.Read more
