Experience matters

Prime Minister designate Jacinda Ardern has announced her Cabinet line-up:

It’s very short on business and general private sector experience.

Academic and political theory have their place.

But they are no substitute for private sector experience which gives those who govern us the real-life practical understanding of what’s needed to give businesses the confidence to invest.

Private sector investment that will increase productivity and employment, not redistribution of taxpayers’ money, are what’s needed to reduce poverty.

    From what I hear and read productivity is of no importance in the scheme of things – ideology will reign supreme for this government and New Zealand will suffer accordingly.

    The positioning of Damian O’Connor at 16 in the Cabinet confirms this.

    Already have customers deferring planned capital spend from next year due to (political) uncertainty and fall in currency

    Experience? Who needs experience, just simple cut & paste from the past. If you’ve been watching media today you would have witnessed Winston and Shane Jones resurrecting Think Big, good on ya Jacinda, Muldoon will be looking down smiling.
