Abstract
This historical review of poverty focuses on the Auckland region. To the extent that national and international policies and events affect Auckland these are included. The focus is historical and hence excludes contemporary poverty issues (see references to publications on contemporary poverty by the author). Aotearoa New Zealand has been deeply affected by poverty, particularly due to economic depressions. As a result of successive governments clinging to economic orthodoxy and a rigid approach to balancing the books, the problems of poverty have increased in severity.
