Free market "Rogernomics" and Maori rights under the Treaty of Waitangi – an resolvable contradiction?



Considers that the only concerted resistance to economic changes effected by the Labour Government has come from Maori and been sourced in the Treaty of Waitangi. Discusses labour policy and the Treaty of Waitangi, the Waitangi Tribunal, corporatisation, fisheries, redefining Treaty obligation, dismantling state capitalism and the welfare state, the function of law and lawyers, the role of the academic activist and strategies for the future.
