In today's email we look at what might be in tomorrow's Budget, and we watch the continuing debate over house building in Auckland.
There may be four months to go before the election, but it's now clear where the National vs Labour-Green clash will be most intense and meaningful: housing.
In today's email, the debate between Labour and the government over their house building plans flares up again, this time over Labour's opposition to two large building projects in Auckland, as well as its migration plans.
In today's email we dig into the Government's house building plan to see how many more affordable homes it is likely to actually create.
In today's email, we look at the latest National Accounts which show productivity remains woeful, we ask just how many new social houses are going to be built in Auckland, and we detail why both Uber and taxi firms are unhappy with the latest recommendations out of the Transport and Industrial Relations select committee.
Bill English yesterday talked up the potential for the Government to add an extra 42,000 houses to Auckland's housing supply over the next decade, extending suggestions from late last year of an extra 30,000 houses being built on Housing NZ land and sold to private buyers in a Kiwibuild-lite way.
