Whāriki features in NZIER Summer Reading List for Prime Minister

The New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) has celebrated the launch of its 2020 Prime Minister's Summer Reading List with an event at Unity Books, Wellington, yesterday evening. 

One of the eight books listed is Merata Kawharu and Paul Tapsell's thought-provoking Whāriki: The growth of Māori community entrepreneurship, published by Oratia Books in November last year.

The NZIER puts together the list to recommend books that can be enjoyed by the Prime Minister, her advisors, and any readers interested in economics and public policy.

Based on a five-year research project that blended on-the-ground interviews with scholarly analysis, Whāriki explores how kin-based business ventures created by Māori have promoted social, economic and environmental wellbeing.   

Its core is eight case studies — some arising from iwi-driven ideas, some ideas from marae-based whanau — that explore the successes, the failures, the learnings and the futures of these opportunities for Māori. 

Dr Merata Kawharu
