If we have to have a stimulus package in New Zealand (because the government feels it HAS to do something), then maybe they could have a stimulus for bloggers. The case is made here (ht Marginal Revolution). It is a 14 point argument – so it must be right!
I would add that there is a concern surrounding entry – people may flood into the blogger industry trying to get the subsidy as there is virtually no barrier to entry. Sure this will increase employment – but it will make the cost of the subsidy unbounded. As a result, they should restrict the subsidy to bloggers on the current Tumeke rankings
