Long term plan needed

The ODT is looking for a long term plan to get us out of the economic mire but isn’t impressed by either National or Labour:

Both major parties in this country are embarked on a short-sighted spending spree to buy votes at a time when the country cannot afford it and may be even less able to meet the cost in the years ahead, if the official forecasts are to be believed.

It is not a responsible approach to the looming problems, nor is it indicative of a sense that the parties have a clear plan to ensure growth in the economy is going to be backed by the production of exports.

So far Labour’s plans concentrate on more redistribution.

But National’s philosophy and policies are firmly fixed on the need for economic growth.
