This much awaited New Zealand book, Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis, was officially launched to a gathering of well over 200 people at the National Library on Thursday 27 June.
It talks about inequality in New Zealand, outlining the issues and debates, the consequences and looking ahead.
The future, in one sense, is now. It is not an abstract, theoretical or even visionary picture of what the world may be like in fifty years or a hundred years. It is, rather, the potential we hold now, as a society. Linda Tuhiwai Smith
A website for starting the dialogue has also been launched as a partnership between the New Zealand Council of Christian Social Services and Max Rashbrooke, editor of Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis. It has a blog and local events, so check it out here.
