Starship Education: Enterprise culture in New Zealand

Vol 11, Number 1, p.1
In this paper I will concentrate on providing a brief review and critical comment on three of the related elements in the emergence of the notion ‘enterprise culture’ in Britain and New Zealand. One element is the rise of the notion in the British context and its comparison with the more liberal German interpretation, the second is the Porter Project, while the final element is the Education for Enterprise Conference. The critical review is prefaced with an introduction to the 1991 Budget demonstrating the way in which the notion of enterprise underwrites the Government's economic strategy and recent policy changes in education.
