This paper critically examines the political-economic reform programme which New Zealand has undertaken since 1984. Many observers, both in New Zealand and overseas, have argued that all Western countries must eventually follow New Zealand down this neo-liberal reform path. The paper argues against this view, showing that the New Zealand reforms have mostly failed to achieve their purpose; a fact which is already lessening their international appeal.
