- What Australia Can Learn from New Zealand
- By: Laura Tingle
- Narrated by: Aimee Horne
- Length: 4 hrs and 7 mins
In this wise and illuminating essay, Laura Tingle looks at leadership, economics, history and more. Competitiveness has marked our relationship from its earliest days. In the past half-century, both countries have remade themselves amid shifting economic fortunes. New Zealand has been held up as a model for everything from tax reform to the conduct of politics to the response to COVID-19. Tingle considers everything from Morrison and Ardern as national leaders to the different ways each country has dealt with its colonial legacy.

Somewhat cliche story.
I need to acknowledge that it is a short story. But it is rather predictable. There are some sparks of brilliance but too little depth.
