Summary: "A staggering rise in wealth disparity has transformed New Zealand from one of the developed world's most equal nations to one of the most unequal. So dramatic has been this shift from a supposedly egalitarian society that the future has become difficult to grasp. What are the options for - and barriers to - tackling the gap between rich and poor? Inequality addresses these questions in the New Zealand context - a powerful argument from some of the country's leading commentators"--Publisher information.
