It's a disaster. In my lifetime we've slid from the second richest nation in the world to about 40th - depends on how you do the sums. Since John Key set out to "catch up with Australia" our OECD ranking in per capita GDP (the wealth we each generate) has fallen 5 places and Australia's had risen 5 places. It's all about productivity. I could go on for hours about this... :o)

This is a very misleading question as it is asking for an individuals perspective on a national measure. Perhaps a more meaningful question would be: What economic shape are New Zealand households in? Also, what economic shape are New Zealand communities in. As this is where my loyalty lies I would say very poor shape. As for the national question, the government has been borrowing needlessly and saving money, the Crown has been saving money, the banking industry has been making money... all at the expense of New Zealand household wealth. If you wish to know more about this go to www.palparty.org = a popular associative and lawful option of governance.

Definitely not. Remember the gap between 'rich; and 'poor' and the OCED in education as well. That's a negative sign of NZ doing badly.
