Extremely important issues for NZ; but who will come to the debate?
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 1 Dec. 2010 ) Depending on your point of view, the 'Top 10 Issues for New Zealand' could make for depressing reading.
The New Zealand Institute's list form the basis that, if resolved, would make the greatest contribution to the country's long term success.
There's no doubt about the importance of what they're talking about.
The question, is how? Unfortunately, the way the media works (or doesn't work), is that it doesn't like unanswered questions. Hopefully I'm wrong, but this report may not achieve much traction in the wider world.
Yes, these issues are put up for debate - but, who is going to join the discussion?
