2008 Election: Tax offer comparisons

Kiwiblog (*, *) and the Standard (*) discuss the size and scope of the tax cut. (Note: some of the discussion can be viewed as partisan).

NZIER economist Patrick Nolan created a calculator that allows you to compare the packages on offer from Labour and National for yourself (Media release, Calculator). Enjoy!

Note:  Other NZIER calculators can be found here.
