And that’s a wrap: Full Book review of Own Your Future

I wish that elections were fought purely on policy. If every party had a book that clearly laid down not their “vision and values” but the problems as they see them and their policy solutions then we could all make informed decisions based on facts, not emotions. I really hate how we are heading towards an Ardern led government that is all about vision and values and that expects us to trust them to make up policy details after the election. People are voting blind for a face and a feel good vibe.

Because I live in my isolated little blogger bubble it is always a shock to the system when I meet up with people who aren’t political tragics like myself. Recently I was chatting to a highly educated woman and she said things like we need more diversity in the political line up, white middle aged males dominate and they do not represent me. I wanted to talk about policy but she was more interested in the politicians.

Over the past few weeks, I have been reviewing a chapter from David Seymour’s book ” Own Your Own Future A Liberal Vision for New Zealand in 2017″ every two days. This post has links to all eleven chapters so that you can easily find the ones you are interested in reading if you missed them when they were published the first time.

I reviewed each chapter without commentary by essentially summarising all the key points and I included direct quotes. If you are interested in details and examples you really need to read the book.

Chapter One: Housing

Chapter Two: Tax

Chapter Three: Superannuation

Chapter Four: Education

Chapter Five: Welfare

Chapter Six: Immigration

Chapter Seven: Public Safety

Chapter Eight: Transport

Chapter Nine: Personal Responsibility

Chapter Ten: Environment

Chapter Eleven: Treaty of Waitangi
