    New Zealand used to have genuine full employment but in 1984 the new Labour government turned unemployment into a tool of economic management with the aim of controlling inflation. The policies and institutions that sustained full employment were abandoned or reconstructed to maximise the new policy of unemployment. This feature documentary tells the story of this transformation revealing what lies at the heart of the modern free market economy: a deliberate government policy of unemployment.

    The story told turned out to be useful to big business in later years. Alan Budd, an economic advisor to Margaret Thatcher said the anti-inflationary policy of "raising unemployment was an extremely desirable way of reducing the strength of the working classes.. what was engineered there in Marxist terms was a ... reserve army of labour and has allowed capitalists to make high profits ever since."

    These days, mass immigration is used to keep unemployment high and the native workers weak.

    Award winning documentary maker Bryan Bruce investigates the failure of Neo-liberal economics in New Zealand.

    I'd really advise everyone to watch the Land of Plenty documentary. It really shows up the lying methods and fraud of Neo-Liberalism. And, ironically, it was the NZ Labour Party that brought in Neo-Liberalism to NZ. It also explains why the Neo-Liberals are now so desperate for mass immigration, now that the native working classes have been too beaten down to have children.

    Actually, New Zealand seems to be an even more corrupt cesspit than Ireland is - and that's saying something. Here's a documentary on a recent electoral campaign that would even make Crooked Hillary look honest. The head of the NZ central bank - featured in the documentary in the OP, ends up fronting an extremely corrupt Neo-Liberal party.

    Documentary on how the Multinationals have distorted NZ society out of all recognition. We'll certainly never see RTÉ making a film like this.

    Very sad film about how children are now dying in New Zealand from poverty related diseases such as TB.
