Summary
"Who benefits from state asset sales? Follow the money as Ian Wishart looks at what happened to Air New Zealand, Kiwirail, South Canterbury Finance and more. This searing expose of one of the biggest issues in politics will be sure to capture attention as the world heads towards another major financial crisis. Ten years ago Ian Wishart's Daylight Robbery on the plundering of the BNZ and other state assets became an instant bestseller. Now, a decade later, partial asset sales are again on the cards as Prime Minister John Key seeks a controversial mandate for privatisation. Polls show most of the public are against the idea, and this revised, expanded and updated version of Daylight Robbery looks at whether the mistakes of the 80s and 90s will be repeated, leading to yet more taxpayer bailouts down the track, or whether John Key's gamble could pay off."--Publisher's description
