  • Economic Solution

    Dear Mr. Key,

    Please find below my suggestion for fixing New Zealand's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to banks to squander on
    lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

    You can call it The Patriotic Retirement Plan:

    There are about 60,000 people over 50 in the work force. - Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

    1) They MUST retire. 60,000 job openings - Unemployment fixed.

    2) They MUST buy a new car. 60,000 cars ordered -Auto Industry fixed.

    3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing crisis fixed.

    4) They must send their kids to school / college /university - Truancy and crime rate fixed.

    5) They must buy $50 of alcohol / tobacco/fuel a week there's your money back in duty / tax etc

    It can't get any easier than that!

    P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances.
    The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates and a monthly salary - Fred Wilson.

    This one did the rounds last year but from an american perspective - hence the reference to the auto industry which we dont have in NZ.
