The Rich List: Wealth and Enterprise in New Zealand 1820-2000

Author(s): HUNT Graeme

New Zealand

The Rich List book builds on the legacy of the 'Rich List' to give an unparalleled overview of wealthy people and the creation of wealth in New Zealand. Journalist and editor Graeme Hunt looks back to the earliest days of European settlement and follows the pattern of wealth-creation through to the present day, covering everything and everyone from the nineteenth-century runholders of Canterbury and merchants of Auckland, to the business dynasties of the Todds and Fletchers, to the corporate high-fliers of the 1980s and 1990s. Whether it's Bob Jones, Sir Michael Fay, Jenny Gibbs or Jonah Lomu, they and their careers are up for scrutiny. This hugely readable book is packed with information about business and wealth in New Zealand. The author has provided ingenious 'rich lists' covering the wealthy in intervals from 1840 to 1999', with more extensive lists in the appendices including a special account of the emerging class of sporting rich.
