GDP is an imperfect measurement of how well we're doing as a country. Essentially it just measures the movement of money around the economy, which means that events like the Christchurch earthquakes are counted as "good" for the economy due to insurance payouts for damaged homes and businesses, despite the human suffering which accompanies it.

Our confidence and supply agreement with the government promises to change that and implement a set of "wellbeing" indexes which measure the actual quality of people's lives, meaning future governments will know exactly where to invest funding to make the most difference 💚

"Aotearoa is the land that gave my family and me safety and dignity when we arrived as refugees, because Kiwis stand for peace and for inclusion. What we should do is engage with the international community in ensuring the victims have access to aid, safe passage out of targeted areas, can settle as refugees without being accused of terrorism or banned from that safety by the likes of Trump. What New Zealand can do is never support any nation on the East/West divide who sponsors violence. We can, as we have always done, stand against violence, with ordinary people, sharing our values."

Writes Golriz Ghahraman, Green Party MP
