Building the New Zealand Dream

Front Cover
Dunmore Press with the assistance of the Historical Branch, Department of Internal Affairs, 1994 - Home ownership - 344 pages
"From the late nineteenth century when New Zealand governments first provided cheap and easily accessible loan finance for houses, state support for housing became an intrinsic part of New Zealand life. In fact we could go so far as to say that government support for "The New Zealand dream" -- the family home in the suburb -- has profoundly influenced the shape of New Zealand society and the New Zealand landscape. Government involvement reached its peak in the 1960s and has slowly declined from that time. This book provides a chronological history of housing policies in New Zealand and examines the effects these policies have had on people and environment." -- Back cover.
