@ResponseMediaNZ I am aware of that, however New Zealand does not have a bottomless pit of financial reserves. The government for now has a surplus of circa $7Billion and a debt level of circa 19% GDP but that will change rapidly. The government simply cannot support every business and in my opinion should concentrate on keeping the essential industries and services running and those business that support them. EG transport, energy, communications, health etc. Sadly there will be business casualties as with any deep recession and the government has safety nets in place to assist individuals.
Your opinion, I dont agree at all. Thats fine. I have no idea why we are having a BCP tomorrow. DHB doesnt need to tell us what theirs is, neither does Genesis or Mainfreight. I thought we lived in a social welfare country, and where the small businesses are actually a far greater part of our economy than the corporates in terms of the economy. And no its not about giving free cash to every business, its about helpong out, in various ways, some business sectors that have been affected by the virus
