Aussie recession package helps NZ

“How’s business?” I asked the owner of a souvenir shop & cafe.

“We’re seeing lots of Aussies, and they tell me they’re spending the recession busting payouts they got from their government,” she replied.

Foreign aid wasn’t the intention of the Rudd government when they gave their citizens a cash boost to keep the Australian economy going. But it’s a wonderful example of unintended conseuqences.

    When we were in Fiji last month the bulk of the Aussies we spoke to were doing the same thing.

    The law of unintended conciquences strikes again.
