Buy The Pine Tree Paradox

'A bold idea we urgently need; a book you must read'

The Pine Tree Paradox sets out a vision for New Zealand driven by innovation, not agriculture. While ‘being innovative’ is orthodox economic thinking in New Zealand today, our approach is not nearly bold enough. A clear-eyed review of our national strengths reveals that we are well-placed to transform our economy into a global centre of innovation. What is required is a world-class university; Stanford-on-the-Waitemata. Parker contrasts our economic experience with that of Northern California and asks: why not us?
