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 Our Unreal Optimism About The Economic Impact Of Coronavirus

At this week’s Chinese New Year celebrations, PM Jacinda Ardern was resolutely upbeat that business with China would soon bounce back to normal – better than ever, even - once the coronavirus epidemic has been brought under control. To Ardern, the adversity has only accentuated just how close we are to Beijing Nothing wrong with being upbeat, if it can calm the nerves and turn business sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problems begin when the optimism detaches itself from reality. What has been very odd so far about the coronavirus episode is that global share markets – normally spooked by mere sneezes or sniffles in the world’s major economies - have continued to be fairly positive, even as the epidemic has unfolded...
