Do Battlers and punters really beleive this "Fake Makeover" rubbish?
IMO, KiwiBuild was not the answer
If you want to boost Housing and wealth Go down to Bunnings Buy a tool Kit and DIY
I have not read the entire write up of KiwiBuild (I did not know about it before); AND I will only comment in terms of what I have very quickly read about it on the website. I will also add that I was born in NZ (would be nice to not have that held against me as well!) and my heart remains there...especially with the Bledisloe coming up...
Anyway from the snippet I have read it reminds me of words/names like 'sub prime', 'Fannie Mae', 'Freddie Mac'...I don't think that ended up to well?
I may be ill informed as I have not read much on the subject so my apologies if putting it in the context of such an epic financial screw up is out of line.
