NZ Today: #75 – More Green Stupidity

21/04/2022

Perhaps as David Farrar suggests rampant growth in core government spending might have something to do with it

In 2017 core crown expenses were $76.3 billion.

Four years later it was $107.8 billion.

That is a massive 41.3% increase in just four years. Try and tell me that hasn’t contributed to inflation.

Even worse the latest forecast for this year is core crown expenses of $128 billion. That is a 67.8% increase over five years ago. Is the health system 68% better? Is the education system? Is anything? Or are they all in fact performing worse, despite a 68% increase in spending?
