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.
