We need to change the reward structure in New Zealand.

Who do we reward most in the economy right now?

Lawyers. Politicians. Public Servants.

So where do the best and brightest of our young people direct their efforts?

To becoming lawyers, politicians and public servants.

How much do lawyers, politicians and public servants contribute to the overseas earnings of our country?

Nil. Zilch. Zero.

We need to change the reward structure within our society so that lawyers, politicians and public servants get a lot less in both financial and social status, and those who generate exports and productive output get a lot more.
