A Contest of Ideas 

Labour and the Greens are proposing higher taxes because they believe they know best how to spend your money. National and ACT want families to keep more of what they earn so they can use it to build a better future for themselves and the country.

Unfunded Liabilities

Governments will need to remove the blinkers of self-interest and look to implement imaginative policies that are focused on the medium to long-term, rather than the toxic desire to hold onto power for three more years.

Coronavirus: We’re paying for an epidemic of stupidity.

New Zealand is lauded as the perfect example of how to crush the virus, but would anyone be surprised if it too has to pay the price somewhere down the line? Four new cases locked down the 1.6 million inhabitants of Auckland in a monstrously excessive overreaction...
