• Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for “practical wisdom” as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.
  • At the end of this month the government is holding its Jobs Summit, chaired by Mark Weldon and attended by many of the usual suspects from the ‘great and the good’. John Key has said he wants a ‘do fest’ not a ‘talk fest’.

    Adam is therefore asking his readers and indeed anyone else you might come into contact to make constructive suggestions in the comments section of this post as to actions the Key government might take to assist economic improvement in NZ and to fight the recession.

    Adam suggests that commenters might care to say in their comments whether the actions they propose are for immediate, medium term or long term action.

    Adam will collate all the comments and forward a consolidated list of suggestions to the Prime Minister.

    All comments and suggestions are welcome… Now is the time for us all to be open minded and see if we can make some useful and perhaps innovative suggestions.
