Migration and the movement of people is one of the critical issues confronting the world’s nations in the twenty-first-century. This book is about the economic contribution of migration to and from New Zealand, one of the most frequently discussed aspects of the debate. Can immigration, in economic terms, be more than a gap filler for the labour market and help as well with national economic transformation? And what is the evidence on the effect of migration not just on house prices but also on jobs, trade or broader economic performance? Building on Sir Paul Callaghan’s vision of New Zealand as a place ‘where talent wants to live’, this book explores how we can attract skilled, creative and entrepreneurial people born in other countries, and whether our ‘seventeenth region’ – the more than 600,000 New Zealanders living abroad – can be a greater national asset.

The Hopkins family embark on the biggest adventure of their lives... Billy Hopkins' Going Places is a fictionalised autobiography of family life in 1950s Manchester and Kenya. Perfect for fans of Lyn Andrews and Nadine Dorries. 'Going Places is the story of a family dealing with their dreams, new challenges and heartaches, and is sure to capture the imagination of all readers' - Huddersfield Daily Examiner It's 1950, and when Laura and Billy Hopkins return to Manchester from their honeymoon, they're in seventh heaven despite the austerity that has been going on since World War II. But the euphoria gradually evaporates and they settle into a penny-pinching existence on Billy's teaching salary, as babies and bills appear with alarming regularity. When Billy spots an advertisement for Education Officers in Kenya, it sounds like the answer to all their prayers, despite worries about the Mau Mau rebellion and the omnipresence of dangerous creatures. After much family debate, Laura, Billy and the junior Hopkins set off to Nairobi on a BOAC Argonaut and start on the biggest adventure of their lives... What readers are saying about Going Places: 'This author has a rare gift; he can have you laughing then virtually reduce you to tears, such is his power of communication' 'Packed with warmth, humour and a keen understanding of life' 'A really lively and refreshing read'
