Covering topics as wide-ranging as healthcare, finance, trade and industry, land and property, education, and sport, this book shows how various aspects of life in New Zealand are inextricably connected. To support the points made, the book includes examples of many New Zealanders who have achieved at home and overseas. The question mark in the book's title leaves the reader to decide whether New Zealand has indeed squandered its potential. What is clear is that this book is a clarion call that New Zealand must act quickly if the country is to keep pace with the rest of the world. But the country must also act carefully to ensure that the views of all New Zealanders are represented in any decisions made that affect their future.
