Do you remember when we used to own the Health Computing Service, DFC, Communicate New Zealand, the National Film Unit and the Tourist Hotel Corporation?
I have vague memories of some of them being state owned but had completely forgotten the others.
They are among the 17 assets sold by previous Labour governments which Keeping Stock lists.
There are valid questions about the way some of the assets were sold. But would we be any better off as a nation if we still owned them, especially those which were in direct competition with private enterprise?
