'Plugging the gap', thankfully, doesn't just state the problems, but delivers some answers
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 6 Dec. 2010 ) There's so much valuable 'stuff' (read factual data, analysis, and most importantly ways forward) in 'Plugging the gap', its hard to know where to start.
The New Zealand Institute's latest discussion paper, written by Rick Boven, Catherine Harland and Lillian Grace should be mandatory reading for……well everyone who is concerned about our country's slow backward drift into despair and (comparative) poverty.
Part of the challenge of the document, subtitled 'An internationalisation strategy' is it is so comprehensive, any attempt to summarise it, is in itself an understatement.
