Stop Farming Capital Gains - they are mostly a tax free illusion.




More on the theme of fiscal policy driven warped behaviour, take a look at this link from Cameron Bagrie at the ANZ:


“New Zealanders need to accept that the economic model of the past 20 years, which is borrow and spend-style growth, is an unsustainable model. The rural sector needs to accept … you’re not going to see the big speculative asset price booms. The value of your asset needs to be determined by yield and cashflow.”


The full article is here:

It might also be worth looking a my presentation slides 20 to 24 are most in this respect, they are here:

All up we have been stuffed by the fiscal incentives to chase capital gains, not yield and cashflows.


As this unwinds it will hurt – and the policy response is what?
