TOP SCOOPS

Howard’s End: Singaporean Conformism No Model For NZ

- Singapore is often held up as a business role model for New Zealand to follow, but its impulse to control leaves little room for spontaneity and it is failing to produce the kind of entrepreneurs that it needs. John Howard writes. See... Howard's End: Asian Tiger Lacks Spontaneity [1]

Stateside With Rosalea: No Room For Losers

- There is something admirable about the young man who was reportedly shot in the jaw and buttocks by a police officer at El Cajon near San Diego this week. It wasn't admirable that he'd driven up with a shotgun at lunchtime and was seemingly shooting at the deputy principal for not giving him a pass grade. But it was admirable that he'd gone back to repeat his last year at high school in order to graduate. See... Stateside with Rosalea: How Dare You Fail! [1]
