Reading first hand

Liberty Scott reckons you should read first-hand the post-election departmental briefings that bureaucrats write for incoming governments, rather than read the mis-reports you see in the paper.
I recommend you read post election briefings from The Treasury at least, and any other department you have a particular interest in. The media wont report on these critically – as New Zealand has precious few journalists, just reporters that take as given what departments say – except Treasury, because journalists are wary of anyone talking economics – they don’t understand it.
Phew. Make sure you have plenty of coffee in the house.
