"Pacific Islanders' crime rates, poor education and low employment are creating an underclass and a drain on the economy, a study [released by] economist Greg Clydesdale, of Massey University's management and international business department." So says the Dominion's front page this morning.
Message to Greg: your figures are in error. As Lindsay Mitchell points out, the figures for crime, employment, housing and welfare don't even begin to support your argument, which means your conclusion doesn't stack up.
So much for Mr Clydesdale, Massey University's management and international business department, and the fact-checking ability of the Dominion.
