  • Hard News: A Big Idea,

    I think David Parker needs to be very careful not to oversell the effect on the exchange rate, tat Labour and others were considering compulsory (or near to) retirement savings has been known for sometime and the increase of savings, especially while the Cullen fund contributions are halted, in combination with KiwiSaver will help this. Also, Brian Fallow: Labour's plan looks good.

  • Hard News: Illegal Highs,

    A continuation rather than a coincidence, please again for a detox facility for medical assessment.

    Drug use is a health issue.

    Yet underlying causes including mental health issues are in the too-hard-basket. I feel your frustration.

  • Hard News: Taking a very big gamble,

    Apologies off-topic but: Is it just me or is anyone else hoha on the government spending such a campaign on selling their attractively priced Genesis shares, complete with jingle? (I've just clocked eyes on them). I mean, for those in the market, it's on investors radar already and yet our money has been diverted into mainstream peak time advertising that looks to me beyond the cost of the previous share issues. Happy for the creative in the ad market, but seriously. how many thousands went into this? I fell an OIA coming on.

  • Hard News: Aiming for the feet, in reply to Joe Wylie,

  • Hard News: CactusLab: Clever and Social,

    I still miss when CactusLab had the Connect Four game on their site... but that is a seriously impressive list of clients.

  • Hard News: Climate, money and risk,

    Scientists, who have come to rely on liberals in political battles over stem-cell research, climate change and the teaching of evolution, have been dismayed to find themselves at odds with their traditional allies on this issue. Some compare the hostility to G.M.O.s to the rejection of climate-change science, except with liberal opponents instead of conservative ones.

    NYT, typically thorough reporting on a Hawaii bill to ban GMO.
