Keeping it Kiwi/Asset sales
Posted November 5, 2008on:
I’m certainly glad we are keeping it Kiwi….
At the end of the day, I feel that people don’t analyse government asset purchases or sales properly. People get fired up about asset sales and make arguments like “National sold our state assets too cheap” to support the argument that asset sales in general are a bad idea (this argument is a personal pet hate of mine). Similarly I can see people will latch on to this announcement about kiwi rail and use it as an argument that the state shouldn’t own these assets.
People need to seperate the poor implementation of an idea from the idea itself.
