A collection of columns and interviews from Rod Oram about how New Zealand has fared so far in the global market, the unique challenges that lie ahead for us (global warming, political instability, oil shocks, etc.) and the opportunities for to earn a bigger, better, more sustainable living out in the world economy.
The author argues compellingly that we are failing as a country to understand the extent of our opportunities in the world. But conversely, there is a lack of appreciation of how steep the challenges are; and how great the dangers if we don't succeed - we will eventually fail as an economy and society.
Rod is known for his direct and prescriptive commentary and for his ability to make complex concepts understandable to the average reader or listener.
