This paper develops two key concepts, gross migration-corrected product (GMP) and welfare cost of migration, and calculates them using New Zealand data. Growth performance measured by New Zealanders' income has been clearly better than suggested by the GDP. The welfare cost associated with a marginal change in the tax rate appears quite high.

Einer der Fischverkäufer brüllte: „Schönen Nachmittag, ihr Joghurtfritzen!“ Dutzende gutgekleideter Leute hielten daraufhin Joghurtbecher in die Luft. Du meine Güte, dachte sie, wo bin ich denn hier gelandet?War das etwa ein Fisch, der da durch die Luft flog? Sie fragte sich noch, ob sie wohl träumte, als schon der nächste hinterher kam. Mary Jane Ramirez hat ein Problem – man hat sie zur Leiterin einer Abteilung gemacht, die firmenintern nur als Wüste und Giftmülldeponie bezeichnet wird. Diese Leute erledigen unmotiviert einen völlig langweiligen Job. Und nun erwartet man von ihr, dass sie ihrer Abteilung umgehend wieder Leben und Energie einhaucht ... Schließlich ist es ein Besuch auf dem Pike Place Fischmarkt, durch dessen mitreißende Atmosphäre Mary Jane erfährt, wie sie sich selbst und ihren Mitarbeitern Arbeitsfreude und Energie zurückgeben kann. Und bald merkt sie, zu welchen Leistungen ein Team fähig ist, das dynamisch, motiviert und lustvoll an seine Aufgaben herangeht. Der Pike Place Fischmarkt in Seattle ist ein realer Ort. Er stand bereits für ein Lehrvideo Pate, das in den USA von Tausenden von Unternehmen erfolgreich eingesetzt wird. Die Autoren haben die Erfolgsgeheimnisse von Pike Place in eine spannende Geschichte verpackt und so ein ungewöhnliches und höchst lesenswertes Motivationsbuch geschaffen. „Ich garantiere, dass jeder Manager von Fish! profitieren kann ... Ich bin begeistert von Fish!“ Ken Blanchard
