The New Zealand Experiment: A World Model for Structural Adjustment
by Jane Kelsey

New Zealand was once famed as the first county to give women the vote, as the birthplace of the welfare state, and as clean green and nuclear free. Today it is gaining worldwide recognition (or notoriety) for what has become known as the ‘new zealand experiment’. The application of pure neo liberal economic theory in this country since 1984 has been proclaimed an international success story, and is now being sold by the guardians of the global economy as a model fo rthe rest of the world.
Jane Kelsey challenges the basis for these claims. she finds that for these international commentators success means the entrenchment of the structural adjustment programme- irrespective of its economic and social outcomes.
