The Club For Growth
All over the world we are seeing interest in economics because people are concerned about low growth, unemployment, under-funded health systems and all the other problems we are seeing in many modern economies. After all, if we have a solution to these problems then why on earth are we standing by and watching our nation go down the gurgler?
One of the other activists in this drive for better government is The Club For Growth established in the USA recently. They have a philosophy of channelling funds towards political candidates who espouse growth policies and who will work to maximise the GDP growth rate.
Their approach may not work in New Zealand under MMP but we are looking for similar maginative ideas. [ Visit Website ]
