I have written and edited several works on income and wealth inequality in New Zealand, all of which have contributed to and shaped a growing debate on economic justice in this country.
In June 2013, Bridget Williams Books (BWB) published Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis, which I edited, and which examines the explosion in the rich-poor divide during the last 30 years, its effects on our society, and how it might be reversed.
The book generated widespread discussion and numerous reviews, articles and comments, many of which can be found at www.bwb.co.nz/books/inequality. Since its publication, the rise of interest in inequality has continued, and it became one of the key policy issues in the 2014 election campaign.
In July 2014, BWB published The Inequality Debate: An Introduction, a short guide to income imbalances in New Zealand, and in November 2015 Wealth and New Zealand, which contained ground-breaking analysis of asset inequality.
