#408. Sixty three not out forever.
The Green party wants us to increase the money supply so that the dollar will go down. The PM has quite rightly called it a wacky idea. The Green Party defend the idea by saying the US does it all the time.
I don't think we want to aspire to be the US ( for all of the last century post WWII I would not have said this).
I reckon the Green Party should stick to worrying about the Greenhouse effect.
The best argument in favour of the idea - is that apparently the NZ dollar is the tenth most traded currency in the world because the government doesn't intervene with it. This creates much volatility. If the government becomes more interventionist the speculators will leave us alone.
Edit - floating the dollar was a fundamental tenet of Rogernomics which turned us around from bankruptcy...

The Singaporean accent has to be the toughest one to get used to. Struggling to understand half of what's being said. Thank god my office is full of expats.

Orchard Road meetup when Jono is here?
Depends, if I can get an extra week off. But to be honest, don't think I'll be able to make it guys.
I'm sure the people of Greece and Spain whole-heartedly agree with the Nobel Committee's decision tonight.
