During the four years that Roger Douglas was Minister of Finance in the fourth Labour Government he presided over the most far-reaching structural reforms that New Zealand has ever experienced. But he believes those changes did not go far enough. In reviewing where New Zealand stands today, he has conceived a vision for the future – a vision that you can’t afford to ignore.
In this controversial book, Roger Douglas offers practical policies and politics rather than theory and empty rhetoric, and he bases them on individual choice and personal responsibility. He looks at what helps and does not help the disadvantaged and makes people, not institutions, the central issue. He looks forward to the year 2020 and argues that there is a better way for New Zealand.
