Description of this Electronic Book

Get up-to-speed with some of the biggest challenges facing New Zealand with this bundle of high-profile BWB Texts.

These four works are combined into one easy-to-read e-book, available direct and DRM-free from our website or from international e-book retailers.

Seventy-five years after Labour's social security reforms of the 1930s, Paul Dalziel and Caroline Saunders argue in Wellbeing Economics it is time for a major shift in New Zealand's economic perspective.

In Growing Apart, Shamubeel Eaqub highlights the changing economic fortunes of people in different parts of New Zealand - the growing gaps between our regions.

Max Rashbrooke's The Inequality Debate provides a succinct introduction to income inequality in New Zealand using the latest data.

The meaning of The Piketty Phenomenon for New Zealand is explored by a diverse range of economists and commentators addressing the relevance of Thomas Piketty's 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century'.

BWB Texts are short books on big subjects by great New Zealand writers. Commissioned as short digital-first works, BWB Texts unlock diverse stories, insights and analysis from the best of our past, present and future New Zealand writing.
