Dalziel Talks About Population Change

- It is very easy to get caught up in statistics, something I am acutely aware of each time the Migration Statistics come out. As Minister of Immigration I am apparently responsible for emigration. However, bald statistics are easy to report, even when they are accompanied by warnings about the reliability of interpreting the data in a particular way. See... Population Association Of NZ - Dalziel Speech [1]

Keith Rankin Defends Home Tax

- The opprobrium heaped onto the 2001 Tax Review committee for suggesting a home ownership tax was so loud and so righteous that it pre-empted any reasonable public debate on both that issue and the other issues raised by the taskforce. See... Keith Rankin: In Defence Of Equitable Home Tax [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0106/S00145.htm

See... All Blacks Will Win, Say Well-Known Kiwis [1]

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
