[quote]It is easy for us to mistake a slowdown for a recession, and for New Zealand, at least in the last twenty five years, recession has always been the signal for unleashing a rash of radical economic policy proposals. In the eighties and nineties we grew used to the idea that there was always a quick fix for a recession.The truth is we don’t have a recession, and we certainly should not alter our current economic policy settings.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
