Useful website

Rod Deane has a website, Independent Economics. I have linked to the page featuring his presentation, The State of the Nation - An Economic Overview of New Zealand, which is full of interesting graphs like the ones below.

I was just musing about the middle one. It may be the lefthand axis will have to be extended downwards in coming years or the bar will disappear!

Oh and picture this. While Dear Leader delivered her glorious skite card to the Southampton University earlier in the week unbeknownst to her these graphs (and there are many more) are projected behind her - one after the other.

What a comic but tragic juxtaposition. There's a romanticism about being poor but happy. Trouble is I'm not sure we got the second half of the deal.

Lindsay, you are a gem for providing such useful and interesting links.

I have had a quick look at the Independent Economics website. Your selection of graphs is only a modicum of some very scary information about where our economy is headed. I shall return to the site for a more thorough reading as time permits.

The voting public is as oblivious to the state of the economy as it is to the Electoral Finance Bill.

Governments of the Left are here to stay.
