It’s the economy, stupid!

National Business Review has this weeks Dispatch From Helengrad.

  • Best Play of the Week – Sir Roger Douglas gets an A for his policy of increasing Government spending at no more than the rate of inflation and population growth.
  • Worst Play of the Week – The Greens get a D on behalf of the planet for rejecting forestry offsetting in the Emissions Trading Scheme, despite the fact it would have resulted in less carbon emissions. They put money before the environment.
  • The Winston scandal gets downgraded to a B+ as there is no longer any real question of credibility left to be resolved.
  • NZ First do get the EFA Breach of the Week with their false donations returns. An A grade offence.
  • Bernard Hickey gets the blog analysis of the week for his scary tales of debt and credit in NZ.
