Whenever National gets worried about Labour’s economic policies they trot out their chief spin doctor Steven Joyce with his tired old clichés and dubious figures – this time National is concerned about our monetary policy announcement, says Labour’s Finance spokesperson David Parker.
“Steven Joyce is worried because Labour is getting the message across to Kiwis that Reserve Bank changes are an important part of the solution for lower mortgage rates, more exports and better jobs that pay higher wages.
“Interest rates are rising, house prices are out of control, exporters are struggling, wages are stagnating and jobs are being lost. It’s tough out there for Kiwis and National is doing nothing to address this.
“Labour’s monetary policy upgrade is part of our broader economic plan which will turn this around. Steven Joyce’s fear is that Kiwis get this,” says David Parker.
