How unfortunate… we’re not as unequal as some want to think

Brian Fallow’s recent article on inequality in NZ is a worthwhile read. Fallow could hardly be described as “right wing” or particularly a promoter of any hard line stance. He can be almost irritatingly neutral.

This is a well balanced assessment based on recent and relevant data. The conclusion – which being a journalist he opens with:

The idea that New Zealand has become one of the most unequal societies in the developed world is just not supported by the data.

is therefore worth noting.
