15% day! yeehawww


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>And yeigh....will we rein in spending or will we spend as we have done all year? With this increase in goods and services tax, will the economy be stimulated, or will it grind to a halt as people spend less? The consumer is all important to New Zealand's economy - just as it is in the USA. In New Zealand consumer spending accounts for 60% of 'expenditure GDP'. Thats a fair bit, is it not? I ain't no economist, but, if us consumers really do wield power over the fate of the figures, should we really take such a gamble on pricing? Another thing - I find it so frustrating and ironic that our culture and media brand welfare beneficiaries as useless and unproductive people when at the end of the day they(we) are the greatest consumers - failsafe consumers, with most if not all 'our' 'money' going into consumer goods like food and sundry and into the coffers of telecoms, utilities, real estate, landlords trusts. These payments are merely transfers. Each WINZ client a conduit for wealth to find its way back into corporate coffers. Its as simples as that.
Hey, but anyways...considering THIS BLOG is going thorugh to 2019,,,,(as long as i live that long and we still have internet in the future) lets keep a keen eye on economic indicators over the next year or so eh what??

I believe New Zealand is far too small and under-populated to really get the right wing agenda pumping the way some assholes out there want it. If they start kicking sickness benficiaries off the dole, there'll be too many people on the street, getting sick, robbing YOUR house, pissing in YOUR pot, infecting you,,someone you know, their kids coming to school undernourished, sickly and infectious , with your righteous Tory sons and daughters in the firing line.... 4 degrees of seperation in a tiny country... welfare transfer payments prop up so many different aspects of NZ society. NZ is too small for the extreme right - they should all go to the USA .
