the asset sales make no economic sense for the government, but there is some sense in them for the country as it will make our stock market bigger and then more viable (and give people, and kiwisaver, something stable to invest in). But it would be much better to do it with stock issues for new projects (like wind farms).
I also think they should be sold to NZers only, but thats just cos I'm a dirty commie lefty pinko.
