Labour Saving A Memoir by Michael Cullen

A fascinating and in-depth insight into the extraordinary career of one of our most important politicians, who was instrumental in shaping the development of New Zealand.

In this clever, witty and detailed memoir, Hon Sir Michael Cullen describes his lengthy political career, including his major economic policies. Among the many highlights are the New Zealand Superannuation Fund, also known as the Cullen Fund; Kiwisaver; and the Working for Families package, which sought to reduce inequalities.

He also had the unenviable task of steering the economy through the onset of the GFC, drawing on the surpluses created during his careful stewardship of fiscal policy from 1999. He was also a key negotiator in Treaty of Waitangi claims, a stage of his political life of which he is deeply proud.

As one of Labour's most trusted and senior party members, he has had a box seat during the highs and lows of the party's fortunes. In Labour Saving Sir Michael outlines his strong philosophy of egalitarianism and his social democratic approach to politics.

Hon Sir Michael Cullen KNZM served as Deputy Prime Minister of New Zealand, also Minister of Finance, Minister of Tertiary Education, and Attorney-General.

He was the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party from 1996 until November 2008. He left Parliament in 2009 and became the chairman of New Zealand Post.

He has held a number of public service roles, including as chair of the Tax Working Group and Earthquake Commission, and on the boards of the Bay of Plenty District Health Board and the Lakes District Health Board.
