well if the World Bank says it...

Apparently NZ rates top of a survey of 145 countries for "ease of doing business". The World Bank rated countries based on regulatory climate and flexible labour laws, amongst other factors. Guess that means this Government is doing enough for business. And yet it continues to campaign for the votes of a business community that is never going to vote for them, never going to be nice to them, ahead of its core supporters...

I think it's a bloody bizarre survey; but none of the things National wants or Labour has conceded would change the rankings in the survey. Nor for that matter would a significantly more left wing government easily be able to change the rankings. If you made dismissing workers illegal you might change it, but I haven't seen that advocated by anyone.
