State of New Zealand's Future: 2008 Report

There has been much recent talk about the return of Sir Roger Douglas to the political scene, but what about the possible return of Muldoonism? Some of the mega-drivers of change that Futures Thinking Aotearoa identified last year, when the dots are joined, show disturbing similarities between now and the late 1970's and early 1980's. Will we see car-less days, petrol rationing, headlong inflation, wages and prices frozen and social unrest again? Or will it be 'business as usual' with some small variations? As well, with migration running at relatively high levels for some years creating a much more multi-ethnic society, some people are worrying as New Zealanders, "who are we"?

Mike Gould, Futures Thinking Aotearoa's Chairperson has been reviewing impacts from the mega-drivers, both internationally and in New Zealand and will present his findings in a 2008 Report on the State of New Zealand's Future.
