The Children's Commissioner has started the year off with another condemnation of New Zealand's child poverty statistics:
Dr Wills is incredulous as he explains that no other OECD country had the same rise in child poverty or inequality in the 1990s.
Measured by the Gini coefficient one other country did have the same rise in inequality - Sweden.
And many other countries weren't far behind.
Those countries that didn't experience inequality growth - where income became more evenly distributed - were....
...France, Greece, Ireland, Spain and Turkey. All countries with economies that are in trouble.
