Economics Today

Let’s talk about the Budget. To most my age, they wouldn’t care less but if it gets you out of class. Well then everyone’s interested.

So my accounting and economics classes got to hear the Finance Minister, Bill English, talk about the budget. Like all politicians, they were careful and round about answers to the questions different schools asked.

Surprisingly, he answers my hypothetical question about what he’d have like to put funding into, if we weren’t in deficit. His answer included superannuation and I can’t remember the rest.

I wanted coffee afterwards, turned out we’d gone into a cafe/bar, they kicked us out. Nevertheless it was a good day apart from the crappy yet typical weather.
