BWB author Max Rashbrooke wins prestigious fellowship

Congratulations to BWB friend and author Max Rashbrooke on his appointment as Victoria University’s JD Stout Fellow for 2020.

BWB has published two Texts written by Max – Wealth and New Zealand and The Inequality Debate: An Introduction, and a book: Government for the Public Good: The Surprising Science of Large-Scale Collective Action. He also edited Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis.

As the Stout Fellow, Max will work on a new project: ‘Unbalanced: How Wealth Inequality is Reshaping New Zealand’.

His research has revealed a growing divide in Aotearoa: “As a result, the social glue that holds this country together – empathy, connectedness, a sense of a shared life with everyone else – is weakening. These are concerning trends that deserve investigation.”

We are excited and looking forward to working with Max on the new book that results from his Stout fellowship project.
