dc.description.abstractNew Zealand has often been called Arcadia, a �land of milk and honey�, or �Godzone�. Many tourists who have visited our country will reflect that it is populated with irrepressibly optimistic, friendly, happy and creative individuals (Florida, 2004). This paper will utilise recent critical social research to show that through a collective drive for social and economic progress, New Zealanders have had a long-standing motivation for the realisation of individual, business and social utopias.
