See... Feedback: On Blue Greens On Green Greens [1] and Green Party In Economic Backwoods [2]

Part 3 Of Adrian Picot On Why GE Is Bad Science

Guest Opinion: Watching Helen Flounder From Afar

- Of course there was absolutely no reason for an early election except that Helen was convinced that Labour would win an outright majority in parliament. This just shows that economics is not the only field where she is completely delusional. See... Guest Opinion: Helen Clark Beached [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0207/S00175.htm


Feedback: Student Debt Is An Investment

- All these tears about students who face $20000 (NZ) or $30000 debt - in extreme cases $50 000 - seem misplaced, given that most New Zealanders have no compunction about borrowing $100 000 or $ 150 000 (or more) to buy a house. See... Feedback: Value Education, Pay For It [1]
