Economic growth is the means

National is unapologetic about its focus on economic growth in spite of criticisms that this means it doesn’t care about people.

What the critics don’t, or won’t, understand, is that economic growth is the means not the end.

The only sustainable way to provide first world services and infrastructure and to help people is through economic growth.

Any government can throw money at problems.

A good government aims for quality spending rather than quantity.

National  had done that in the last three terms. It worked hard to make sure the country could afford its initiatives and that the money spent was spent wisely, focussing on addressing the causes of problems not just treating the symptoms.

That is the best way to make a positive difference to people and the country.
