What Australia can learn from New Zealand with Laura Tingle
In this wise and illuminating Quarterly Essay, chief political correspondent for ABC's 7.30, Laura Tingle, looks at leadership, character and two nations in transition. New Zealand has been held up as a model for everything from privatisation to the conduct of politics to the response to COVID. Tingle considers how both countries have been governed, and the different way each has dealt with its colonial legacy. What could Australia learn from New Zealand? And New Zealand from Australia? In conversation with Ben Oquist, Executive Director of the Australia Institute.
