Privatisation - and the problem with Key

Share |
I would not be surprised if John Key loses the next election. He is making some big mistakes, and here is why:
1. He is a conservative government in a recession
2. He is advocating privatisation of assets during a recession when they are less valuable for two reasons; share market earnings ratios are lower and two because demand is subdued.
3. Selling the companies in a recession will mean that few poor folk will be able to participate in the profits
4. Track record - NZ sux at privatisation, so he is going to be brandishing that reputation for screw ups
5. He is a prior investment banker....and he has that 'smarmy' smile about him which tells you that he was a salesman, not an analyst. i.e. Not respect for facts; he just likes making money, as any middleman likes to do. Anyone with a respect for facts would not become a politician.
6. Labour will be making this an election on privatisation - about what happened last time.

Labour is also offering a tax cut to the poor which 'socialist' NZ will love. I have to say that this ought to have been a runaway election for the Conservatives. The problem is that Key is just too fleeting. One does not see a plan. One does not see him getting involved in social policy. He is more into the 5sec TV grab - 'got your quote guys...sweet!' sort of man. He needs to spend a day with Oprah. He needs a hug. This country is crying out for social reform.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
