Unless we dump MMP there will be no improvement in New Zealand's economy.

The good, sound governing of New Zealand is constantly jeopardised by the restrictive nature of MMP and the disruptive tactics of minor parties who have too much say, despite getting in to Parliament by default, rather than being elected by the people.

Not one of the Green Party's MPs has ever been elected by an electorate. This also applies to New Zealand First.

The ridiculous thing is that many New Zealanders actually think they live in a democracy. In case you have forgotten, a true democracy elects all members of Parliament and this simply does not, and never will happen, under MMP.
