Lest we forget ... Labour's performance

A recent poll had Labour, the Greens and the Maori Party with enough support to govern once again. Though it is at least a couple of years till the next election (as scheduled) a reminder of the past six years is timely.


Bassett, Brash and Hide readers will be interested in a site called KPI - Kiwi Performance Indicators. It provides a range of indicators relating to various aspects of the economy and compares National's performance to Labour's over varying time frames. Four are selected below:









Each of the graphs - plus many more - is interactive at the KPI site where you can learn more about the data and where it is sourced. It's well worth visiting and subscribing to.

Why on earth am I the only financial commentator in NZ willing to call out this blatant and monumental financial heist? And where the hell are these people on this, two of whom are site principals and one a regular writer... all three with degrees in eCONomics?... Don Brash Rodney Hide Robert MacCulloch - among his fields of research are listed "Public Economics" and "Poverty, inclusivity and wellbeing" - is this some sort of sick joke? And the entire "The NZ Initiative" so-called "pro-free-market public-policy think tank and business membership organisation" - what a tragic friggin joke that label is - What do these people actually do?... Dr Oliver Hartwich Dr Eric Crampton Roger Partridge Dr Bryce Wilkinson Not so much as a squeak from any of them, wh…

Nothing will change until the financial illiteracy of the West is addressed. That chart should have been the feature one - all the others are peripheral consequences of a broken system. The financial policies of all the incumbent parties ignore the greatest con in history. Western fiat casino financial models ignore the fact that around 97% of the money supply is created by commercial banks - they conjure it up out of thin air. https://globalsouth.co/2024/05/04/economics-part-vi-money-creation-and-cbdcs/ Colin Maxwell

Lest we forget


Frightening when you think about it.... but we will forget and the Labor grubs will be back.

And a damn site quicker than many could have imagined....

Why ?

Luxflakes will keep putting band aids on the hurtie spots, kiss all the kiddies better... and the Kindergarten will be able to return to normal. The gender challenged, climate fearing wombats will retake their seats in Welly and everyone will feel safe again.

The coalition members will do as coalitions members are prone to do; which is diddly squat.

The dogs will bark and the caravan will move on.....


It won't only be the youngies in the know quitting the scene .... there will also be old farts…

I do Aaron, I do hope the country wakes up with a mass movement towards more of both Seymour and Peters.

Without the Luxon styled ball and chain, those two could change the country and set a standard that would make life in NZ worth living once more. Challenging initially perhaps but nevertheless a future for all.

I'm too old to return to be of assistance but by the powers of Christ I hope I live to witness it.

The graphs make no sense as Covid-19 is not factored into the mix which had more influence on the metrics than any government makeup.

Still blaming Covid :-/ The last lockdown finished in December 2021, Peter. 2.5 years ago. School attendance, tax take, and housing affordability were also all rapidly worsening under Labour's watch before Covid arrived March/April, 2020. Then their poor handling of the mRNA treatment, and it's poor efficacy results, hurt the uptake of childhood vaccinations across the board. Then when Covid did arrive, their excessive borrowing/printing/waste, and low OCR rate, significantly hurt these KPIs even more. Surely you can see this?
