There is such a thing as society

I am pleased to see this in one of New Zealand’s larger news papers.

An opinion piece by Dame Anne Salmond, one of our foremost writers, academics and environmentalists, saying clearly what many of us understand.  The neo-liberal doctrine of the last 30 years has been incredibly damaging; and our leaders, and ourselves, are finally beginning to question and change our thinking and actions.

As I will keep reminding readers, we are successful because we cooperate as well as because we compete.

OPINION:  Across the Anglo-American world in the 1980s, including New Zealand, neo-liberal doctrines went viral.
