RNZ Focus On Politics: National’s Economic Plan


RNZ – Focus On Politics – this edition looked at National’s Economic Plan. Yvette McCullough reported for RNZ.

The document is here.

Michael Reddell at Croaking Cassandra did an excellent critique on the document.

In my view National are doing some good work in policy development. I should like to see more thought put into issues such as productivity, value creation.

NZ lags badly in productivity and is still too focused on bulk commodity products especially in dairy. Thus the relative failure of Fonterra and it’s poor performance at least in part. I also wonder whether business is held back by lack of vision.
