Price Fixing in New Zealand

Excerpt

This survey covers the history of the war and post-war authoritative price-fixing and commodity control in New Zealand -- its effects and effectiveness.

The work could never have been accomplished but for the help of the various Government officials who at one time or another were connected with commodity control. I have especially to thank the Secretary of the Department of Industries and Commerce for permission to abstract particulars from the Departmental files and for the loan of several Annual Reports that were out of print. I have also to thank the Secretary of the Meat Producers Board and the Controller-General of Prisons (former members of the Imperial Supplies Department) for information supplied especially in connection with the Butter Equalisation Scheme. (This information was never published and the general public know nothing of the scheme except the fact of its existence.) I am indebted to Miss Margaret Dunne of the Irving Trust Company, New York, for her work in drawing the charts and to Professor J. M. Clark for reading the proofs.

In those cases where no specific reference is given for statistics, I have compiled the figures from the Monthly Abstract of Statistics, Board of Trade Reports, or New Zealand Gazette notices.
