Rogernomics, predetermined policy or 'bureaucratic coup'?
Barton, Andrew George
This essay is concerned with understanding what exactly Rogernomics is in the eyes of its namesake, Roger Douglas. Under an eight-point framework the policies of Rogernomics are listed according to the two Douglas texts, Toward Prosperity and There’s Got To Be A Better Way! The essay then analysises an argument by Bruce Jesson that Douglas’s policies had little to do with the fourth Labour Government’s economic programme, but rather was based on policies formulated by bureaucrats. The essay in conclusion reveals that this is an erroneous line of argument in the light of overall consistency between Douglas’s stated policies and the Government’s economic programme.
