Where Has All The Money Gone?

Media Release: New Zealand Banking Reform.

Finance Minister Michael Cullen is struggling to find the money to implement the Labour led government's program.

In yesterday’s budget Dr Cullen has just spent around $400 million on new initiatives. And, as we can see, $400 million does not go far.

Michael Cullen has used the $400 million to "close the gaps, reduce the costs of tertiary study or provide relief for New Zealand's most vulnerable households. "

New Zealand Banking Reform respectfully suggests that Michael Cullen look at the Reserve Bank figures of Money Supply..

He will see that New Zealand’s commercial banking sector increased the money supply by $6,065 million in 1999.

Have a look at http://www.reservebank.govt.nz/econ/c_tabc.htm.

If commercial banks do not have any qualms about "fiscal responsibility", how can the government?

Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank Murray Sherwin has informed NZ Banking Reform that, "Money creation is a function of the broader financial system."

If the banking system can create more than $6,000 million in one year, why can’t our government increase spending by any more than $400 million?

New Zealand Banking Reform invites Dr Don Brash to explain to Michael Cullen, and the New Zealand people, how our banking system increased the money supply by six billion dollars in 1999.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Sustainable NZ Isn’t Self-Sustaining

Asking whether this new, environmentally focussed party can make the 5% MMP threshold may be the wrong question...

Its more achievable goal would be to knock the Greens below the 5% threshold, while along the way reviving all the ancient stereotypes about the centre-left being implacably hostile to rural New Zealand. More>>

 

Report On Consultation: Future Of Tomorrow's Schools

“The 1989 Tomorrow’s Schools reform introduced one of world’s most devolved schooling systems where each school operates largely in isolation of each other... It empowered local communities and modernised an overly bureaucratic system but also led over time to uneven outcomes between schools.” More>>
