Abstract:

"Licensing Trusts are a uniquely New Zealand concept now over 70 years old. Sometimes maligned, they have quietly enhanced and supported their communities with annual donations of many millions; and generated through their businesses, community assets worth $350 million. [This book] tells the story of their achievements and failures: why in communities like Invercargill, Mataura, Masterton, West Auckland and Flaxmere they are greatly valued, and why in others they have withered. It explains how two remarkable men in the 1940s, Prime NMinister Peter Fraser, and Rex Mason, Minister of Justice, conceived how communities might take control of the sale of alcohol, generating profits to provide much needed hotel accommodation and a dividend to enhance their community well-being. [The research for this book] lays a challenge: community ownership of trading enterprises provides an alternative to globalisation, and is an important vehicle for the 21st century."--Back cover.
