Description

The most recent NBR Rich List has revealed the biggest proportional increase in wealth since the list first appeared in 1986.  But what do these figures mean and what else do we know about New Zealand's fortunes?  Following his groundbreaking work on income inequality, Max Rashbrooke examines how wealth shapes New Zealand experience.  Drawing on previously unpublished data, this award-winning writer explores what constitutes wealth in New Zealand - where, how and why it is held.  In doing so, he addresses how wealth has come to be so unevenly distributed, and why this imbalance is something we can no longer ignore.
