According to Rodney Hide and the Act Party red tape is crippling New Zealand business.
Now anyone with half a brain knows this to be utterly absurd. Even right wing think tanks know it to be false. And here's the proof. The Heritage Foundation, as conservative a bunch as you'll find anywhere, ranks NZ as fourth in the world in terms of "Economic Freedom".
That's ahead of the US and every European country.
So next time you hear someone from Act going on about the need to deregulate, slap them.
