Productivity Taskforce First Report




The faith goes deep, those who believe in the neoliberal prescription can look at the last 20 years and convince themselves it has been good for New Zealand. The bright ones use their intelligence to plaster over the cracks that experience creates; the dumber ones look to the smart ones to help keep their faith. Nevertheless, the faith is persistent and any new prescription spin can be mapped back to the neoliberal agenda.

Changing times, falling fortunes, eroding performance, and absent productivity growth don’t bring new thoughts because the faithful keep the faith.

It is hard to see this changing until things get much, much worse. The right must learn that too much freedom leads to wealth polarisation and ultimately the loss of national sovereignty, and the left must learn the central planning does not work.

Take a look at:

by Finlay MacDonald.
 

And

http://www.stuff.co.nz/sunday-star-times/business/3128991/Brash-fails-quiz-in-his-shoddy-report
by Rod Oram. [he can't help leaking his 'central planning' tendencies, but I agree with his 'whats' and his assessment that the work is lazy seems close to the mark.]


Shame. It looks like a waste of money.
 

We should wake up this working group and set one up to consider  monetary system reform.
