The numbers matter

National is often criticised for too much emphasis on the economy.

If the economy was the end that criticism would be valid.

But a sustainably growing economy isn’t the end, it’s the means for more jobs, rising incomes and the provision of first world infrastructure and services.

NZ is on track. Keep the team that's working. #3moreyears

The numbers matter because without careful financial management and the sustained and sustainable surpluses it produces, economic growth will at best stall and at worst go backwards.
