Video: We Need a Change of Government


At interest.co.nz we love charts and spreadsheets. We think they help explain what's happening to our economy and society and why interest rates, house prices and the other key indicators move the way they do. David Chaston, our publisher, does a wonderful job of regularly updating our databases of economic and market information. I then gleefully pounce on them and work them into our articles. I think they help make our site special. Here's 11 charts that I think explain why the Labour-led government has failed to deliver the type of economic growth needed to keep our best and brightest (and eventually their parents) from leaving the country. I'm not terribly enthused about the possible alternative, but it does offer a smidgen of hope that a decade-long decline can be turned around.
