Storyline

Thirty years ago New Zealand was on the verge of economic collapse. Today, the country is a driving force in international trade, economic leadership, healthy environmental practices, and is the flagship for sustainable fishing practices. Johan Norberg examines this transition led by an unlikely alliance of farm owners and maverick politicians who broke a system of excessive privileges that was choking the nation. The one-hour documentary introduces us to the extraordinary people who've built new lives for themselves, their families, and their fellow Kiwis by seizing the economic opportunity that resulted from economic reforms.

Full of misperceptions and untruths
30 May 2020 | by trishcoyleSee all my reviews

I couldnt watch this whole thing. Johan Norberg is obviously a very biased little idiot. I lived the life and all of the early history he describes in the beginning is false and untrue and gives absolutely the wrong impression. Who is norberg? A prattish immigrant? An airhead millennial? I am highly offended by this absolute trash and now residing in the USA can see why Americans think NZ is a pathetic little backwater. This film is disgusting and patornizing and needs to be avoided.
