Abstract

New Zealand, beginning in 1984, implemented a virtual economic revolution that involved trade liberalization, privatization of state assets and crown corporations, deregulation of labour markets, the establishment of an independent central bank, a major reform of public finances and taxes, and a restructuring of welfare and the provision of health care and education. The New Zealand experience provides lessons to Canadian policy makers.
