Economics of Elephants

The latest discussion paper from the Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit of The Salvation Army has gone to press. Economics of Elephants is a look at what the current economic crisis could mean for the practice of our faith in Aotearoa New Zealand. You can get a look at it by emailing me (malcolm_irwin@nzf.salvationarmy.org) or by going straight to www.salvationarmy.org.nz/socialpolicy.

Let me know what you think.


  1. not sure i like this paper, its just too challenging, and means i can no longer work on a friend to buy a boat for us to go fishing in.

    In saying that its a great paper and what it says is very true. I think it contains some great response to the current ecomonic problems which others need to take seriously.

  2. If you're having trouble finding this paper on the website, the shortcut to the Social Policy section is: www.salvationarmy.org.nz/socialpolicy
