lol...GDP accounting is currently the subject of much derision...and for good reason.
it would depend on the (required) source of that deficit...i.e. whether the deficit is in NZD or FX
you gather incorrectly
and yet you contradict yourself with the statement... "One implication is that the private sector doesn't have the space to save while the public sector is saving (e.g the govt is running a budget surplus). Especially so if the trade balance is in deficit...
sadly that formula is based on a closed National economy...when you have free movement of capital the equation dosnt apply
not sure a State gov has the capacity to raise the wherewithal to fund a work lockdown.
Vox pop Speaking to a connected lifelong Tory yesterday....the election conceded and the narrative is its a good time not to win.
Any comment on the absent minded Minister at the time?
it may have something to do with a constrained capacity and the need to keep different cohorts separated and together in those limited facilities....Hamilton was prepared for that flight. 7000 individuals needs are difficult to cater for to the nth degree
so it was.....that'll teach me not to read wiki properly
and 2011 results were Nat 45% Lab 34% Green 6.72% NZ First 4% Act 3.65%
True enough although Id suggest the states version is viewed with suspicion by default...as said her version had some inconsistencies
Her side was a little inconsistent though she made a reasonable case (assuming her side was reasonably accurate which is by no means a given)
dont know about you but Winston reminds me of another member of the Red Dwarf cast.... https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/reddwarf/images/8/86/640x960Cat.jpg/revision/latest/top-crop/width/360/height/360?cb=20120926043800
so now we know theres around 100,000 previous Nat supporters who a extreme right
k....Winston will be somewhat concerned
perhaps..but I suspect they'll do a little better than their current numbers when it counts...Winston First however i think not
Winston will have a heart attack
imagine thats something of a moveable feast
While not exactly as I would support its signalling is pretty well right although it does open the gov up to criticism especially on the projected savings but then no regime (that was workable) was ever going to raise more than a token amount of the costs ...
Quite possibly not...then of course he may wish to visit his mother before the cause of such an event ...if possible. The question remains....what purpose does charging serve?
so a charge of $500 for the two weeks of isolation? the choice to fly home may be Hobsons.
since we're doing case studies heres one for you. An expat living in Oz with wife, children , grandchildren all living in same Australian city has elderly unwell mother in NZ who may die at any time and should he wish to attend a funeral he will be ...
case by case to be fair provides a couple of up front problems....the judgement is likely to be subjective and subject to appeal which leads to the second problem which is cost...as said to Janet earlier, what purpose is served by such a regime? it dosnt ...
not in the piece i heard ...but I would imagine the time in country will not be the issue...remember theres already rationing of isolation places and therefore entry into nz
Id propose exactly what I said in the original post...the Greens position....no charge for kiwi citizens outside the country prior to any charging regime and make those that choose to exit the country post charging regime aware that they will be required ...
again...what is a 'normal' daily living cost?...if one of my offspring were needing to return home for whatever reason they would be able to stay cost free with us until such time as they could fend for themselves...a position many parents would take......
thats a strange attitude to take....they havnt chosen to be in isolation, they are required to be in isolation, the element of choice has been removed. and you havnt answered either question
Two questions... what is the 'normal' daily living cost? What purpose is served by such a regime?
ah who would know...but it dosnt signal a positive outcome for National regardless. Who'd be a spin doctor
