Roger Douglas and Don Brash

Roger Douglas and Don Brash

Roger Douglas, minister of finance 1984–1988, was the principal architect of the Reserve Bank Act 1989. He wanted to stop governments from interfering with the bank as Robert Muldoon had done. Douglas is pictured with Don Brash, the governor of the Reserve Bank from 1988 to 2002, and basketball player Angelo Hill playing the board game Monopoly at the Reserve Bank in 1995. They were raising funds for family support service Barnardos.
