New Conservative recognizes the vital importance of a strong, robust, economy. New Zealand is renowned for its ability to lead the world in innovative enterprise. Entrepreneurial endeavours should be encouraged and supported by government where appropriate through R&D benefits.
Successful business and entrepreneurism is essential to creating an economy that serves the nation well. Financial reward for hard work and creativity is critical to the growth of our economy. Without a strong economy there are no means to effectively support those in need. Every effort must be made to address issues causing waste and robbing the nation of its prosperity.
Primary industry should be supported in every way possible, with as little legislative and bureaucratic burden as possible. Taxation should be simple, minimal, fair and predictable. A sustainable building industry must be established to not only meet the housing crisis but also ongoing development of our housing and building infrastructure. A balance must be struck between the important economic benefit that immigration brings and the welfare of those who already call New Zealand “home.”
