Big Fish and Little Fish

Big Fish and Little Fish

Can a minnow like New Zealand swim with a whale like the United States in the sea of commerce?  Do we have sufficient in common such that our requirements and preferences will get heard – especially in the context of reciprocal trade?
The Trans Pacific Partnership -- which involves several Pacific countries -- is bigger than free trade and – to extend the metaphor – it contains fishhooks.

"In Conversation with Noel Cheer", Face Television, Monday June 10th at 7:00pm, repeated on Tuesday June 11th at 12 noon.

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.
