Our three priorities will help deliver a richer New Zealand.
The fiscal implications of the Green Party's priorities for 2011-2014 are revenue positive - in plain English, they pay for themselves. We estimate nearly $8 billion in extra government revenues from various sources (e.g. a temporary earthquake levy, a levy on the commercial use of water) and we estimate our priorities will cost just over $4 billion in new government spending. These figures indicate that our policy priorities would help reduce the government debt.
