Something to check out if you are in Auckland tonight:
What would a people’s Budget look like?
The election-year Budget is always a big part of a Government’s campaign for re-election. If it’s possible, there’s even more spin than usual. The bank economists and the business lobbyists take every opportunity to tell us “it’s good for us because it’s great for business!” It is possible to see it very differently.
Bill Rosenberg and the Council of Trade Unions want to put a people’s perspective on the Budget. What has the Budget done for families, jobs and a viable future? Will it cool the housing market, build infrastructure, create safe and sustaining work for the future of all Kiwis? Bill will present a different analysis, examine the Government’s priorities and look at what needs to be done.
It would be helpful if you registered here.
