I know I have been promoting my publications quite a lot lately, but I must tell you about this new one (there is actually one more coming soon). Today the New Zealand Business Roundtable released the NZ version of my paper: “Why Have Kiwis Not Become Tigers?” (see here), which was published two months ago in the Independent Review (see here). I am very pleased this publication is now directly available in NZ. I hope it will contribute to the policy debate down under and will entice NZ policymakers to pay more attention to entrepreneurship.
Simultaneously, I have published today an article in the New Zealand Herald entitled: “Kiwis into Tigers: Hardly Likely” (see here; the title is not from me but from the editor). The article stresses the issue of entrepreneurship in NZ policy and, following the paper, argues that NZ governments have neglected in the recent past the conditions for entrepreneurial activity (in the Austrian sense of course). If Kiwis are to become tigers, they should focus more on the institutional conditions for entrepreneurial discovery: low taxes, small government, and (a return to) light-handed regulation.
