• Once known as an egalitarian society, New Zealand has seen inequality increasing more rapidly than almost anywhere else in the developed world.
• International evidence indicates that income inequality exacerbates social problems and weakens the economy.
• Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis investigates the situation in New Zealand – where rising inequality is shown to affect all of us.
• The book presents key facts and expert analysis. Leading contributors include Jonathan Boston. Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Kim Workman, Nigel Haworth and Ganesh Nana.
