What is shaping the growing divide between the haves and have nots in Aotearoa? Max Rashbrooke’s book, Too Much Money, is a razor-sharp insight into the fast-developing inequalities across Aotearoa. Tackling inherited wealth, class, opportunity and education, this is a tool for our troubled times. Max speaks with Anna Fifield about the evidence and the possible solutions to our inequality issues.
