The Women of New Zealand
The Welfare State in New Zealand
Professor Condliffe, during a recent prolonged visit to New Zealand as Consultant to the Reserve Bank, had an excellent opportunity to study recent developments in New Zealand at first hand and the result is the first complete appraisal of recent experimental legislation in the country which has probably gone furthest along the road to social welfare. This book, a sequel to his authoritative volume New Zealand In The Making, covers the whole period of experiment up to 1957. He tells how, during the period of the first Labour government (1935-49), great changes were made in social legislation, and attempts were made to stabilize the domestic economy behind the cover of exchange control and guaranteed export prices. He discusses how the social services were developed, local industries fostered, and the recent rapid increase in population. New Zealand's statistical records are among the best in the world and it is therefore an excellent laboratory in which to study the forces at work in economic development, international trade and social reform.
