We'll put in place
an economic system
that's better for people
and the planet
Chris Leitch - Leader
Economic Policy Launched
$20 billion annually funded from the Reserve Bank
Dr Geoff Bertram - Senior Associate in the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies at Victoria University, former Senior Lecturer in Economics in the School of Economics and Finance at Victoria University.
"If this government is serious – and it should be - about supporting economic activity and avoiding deflation by a massive fiscal spending package, financing its package by issuing money in the current circumstances has impeccable support from mainstream economic thinking. More importantly, in the current context it is the correct, most efficacious way to proceed. The current government should not continue to be prisoners of outmoded, arch-conservative political doctrines."
"What the Reserve Bank needs to do now is to make clear that it can and will purchase government bonds directly from the Treasury at 0%. These funds should be used to fund the current and forthcoming economic support packages. This new money must go directly into the economy, and not slosh about the banking system."
Use New Zealand's
to fund the Covid19
"The government can borrow from the Reserve Bank. To be technical it's literally borrowing from itself. We just should not close off any [options] just because somebody told us 30 years ago that it was bad."
"I don’t see why we don’t jump straight to the RBNZ buying bonds from Treasury direct.
"It’s a question of how long do you wait until you get there,” he said, noting that as governments around the world issue bonds to pay for COVID-19, central banks will have to step in and buy these bonds."
"There's no reason why you don't get the Reserve Bank to effectively print the money and lend it to the government, just as the Reserve Bank did in 1935, when it lent money to the government to build state houses."
These experts want Government to 'direct fund' the economic rescue package from the Reserve Bank
While the Reserve Bank is creating $100 billion in new money
and putting it into the hands of rich investors,
the government will be borrowing up to $200 billion by 2024.
$5 billion every year of your taxes will be paying interest
- providing big profits for those wealthy investors.
We implore the government to access those funds direct from the Reserve Bank
at no cost to taxpayers (as recommended by the experts above),
rather than through private sector borrowing.
Your taxes should go into hospitals, schools, poverty reduction,
housing,and infrastructure where they belong.

$14 million every day, wasted because the government won't access funds from New Zealand's own bank (the Reserve Bank) at no interest.
Instead it funnels your money into the profits of foreign lenders.
We've been right all along about banks creating money. We'll restore that right to the Reserve Bank.
These experts (and many others) say banks create money out of thin air with a few computer keystrokes when they make loans.
Yet our government and councils borrow that 'funny money'. They also source funds from other overseas owned financial institutions.
Here's what could be done with that $5 Billion every year
if the government simply used its own bank !
We will restore the right of the nation to create
its own money for much needed public expenditure,

Social Credit has always been way ahead of its time with its ideas, in particular the use of the country's Central Bank - the Reserve Bank - to fund much of the country's development. This concept is being supported internationally by economists, economics professors, world leading financial journalists and a growing body of NZ commentators. Banks like Westpac, ANZ, BNZ, and ASB currently produce 98 percent of the country's money supply when they make loans, creating that money out of thin air. This allows them to generate massive profits which are taken out of the country, adding to our overseas debt. Social Credit would reduce their ability to create so much debt and ensure the creation of our money supply was used to benefit all New Zealanders. We urge you to look at our other innovative, forward looking policies.
