New Zealand Travel
Before 1984 New Zealand was insulated by high levels of protectionism and with a degree of State intervention and regulation unparalleled elsewhere in the western world. Since then New Zealand has experienced one of the most far reaching economic reform programmes of any developed economy. The book describes and analyses the radical economic reform programme undertaken in New Zealand since 1985. These reforms included deregulation of the financial sector, removal of various forms of assistance to producers, particularly in the agricultural sector, increased import liberalisation, radical tax reform, a major overhaul of the public sector and the privatisation of state enterprises. The book seeks to explain why a Labour Government embarked upon the sort of reform programme normally considered the preserve of right-wing administrations elsewhere. It argues that New Zealand's experience provides important lessons for policy-makers elsewhere.
This book is about the game of casino craps; its allure, its superstitions and its truths. It is about luck, chance and systems; about good bets, bad bets, good playing strategies and poor strategies. And it contains an analysis of the odds and the house edge. But it is also about human nature, which is often sharply exposed at the craps tables. I do more than just tell you how to play a sensible game of craps. I include a history of the game, an analysis of why people gamble, and the psychology of craps players. Above all, I stress the importance of mental discipline because it is a lack of discipline that makes most players continual losers. Players often behave in weird and wonderful ways, so I have included stories of what people actually do at the tables. Most craps players are consistent losers because they are ignorant of the basics of the game, and they are caught up in a tangle of emotions while they are playing. They are easy prey for the allure of the high house edge bets that make the casinos so much money. If you will apply the methods in this book and exercise mental discipline, you will greatly improve your game, and greatly increase your chances of winning.
