fiscal stimulus package

It took a foreign newspaper to finally say what I've been saying for months. The question is: Why didn't local newspapers write this piece months ago?

Forgive me if I feel a little vindication reading the Wall St Journal's piece on National's approach to the recession.

Looking at the graph the government used to claim our fiscal stimulus was the third biggest in the world prompts some surprising revelations...

I've finally gotten round to looking at Treasury's Budget Policy Statement from December. It's this document that prompted the government to claim – and keep claiming – that New Zealand has one of the world's largest fiscal stimulus packages.
