Beyond the Free Market: Rebuilding a just society in New Zealand

Author(s): Edited by David Cooke, Claire Hill, Pat Baskett & Ruth Irwin. Beyond the Free Market is essential reading for all those who seek to live in a society built on humanitarian concerns. It is a searching analysis of the changes wrought by market-based economics in New Zealand society of the last thirty years. It presents appropriate strategies to enable us to re-establish a society based on more equal access to resources. The contributors are well informed commentators – activists, journalists and academics. Their brief, accessible chapters range across critical topics such as work, education, health, welfare, trade and climate change. Written in plain, non-technical language, the book describes and explores the ways in which market-based economics now dominates in New Zealand. Beyond the Free Market: Rebuilding A Just Society in New Zealand will appeal to a wide cross-section of readers: academics and students, trade unions and workers, social activists, NGOs, churches and all concerned with social justice.
