State & Economy in New Zealand
State policy making in New Zealand has undergone a fundamental transformation in recent years. This book critically examines this important transformation through an analysis of related historical changes in the economy and civil society. It also assesses these developments by drawing upon and discussing contemporary theoretical perspectives in economics, political studies, and sociology. This volume includes studies on such topics as macroeconomic policy, the role of the Treasury and the Reserve bank, the extent of business influence in State policy formation, export performance, industrial relations, gender inequality, and the Welfare state.
