Researchers study who gets fruit of burgeoning Maori economy

Researchers study who gets fruit of burgeoning Maori economy
- "It is great to see Maori benefiting from this development, but some are missing out, so we need to better understand how to advance so that the benefits are widely shared," said Rachel Wolfgramm, a senior lecturer in management and international business at the University of Auckland Business School.
She is co-leading a project that will look at Maori leadership and decision-making and work out what sort of practises embody traditional values in a way that generates wealth and well-being.
Decisions made on the marae, within iwi corporations and Maori-run businesses affect who gets to enjoy the fruits of this burgeoning economy, she said.
"We want to highlight what's working well, act as conduits for the collective wisdom out there so people are confident and affirmed and see a pathway forward," said co-researcher Chellie Margaret Spiller, an associate professor in the same department.
