Thank goodness for that

Rod Oram, writing in today's Sunday Star Times says, "Brash's prescription of less tax, spending and regulation shows no advance in his economic thinking for 25 years." Thank goodness for that.

As Roger Kerr has said, economics is not a matter of passing fashions.

Brashs recipe will be as valid 10, 20 or a hundred years from now as it is today brcause truth and facts are just that! Oram is an economic illiterate and a coward.

From all the things I've read by Oram he seems to know no economics at all but have very strongly held opinions on the topic. He seems to think there are no economic laws merely economic preferences.
