Brian does his best to camouflage his bias re New Zealand Superannuation, and his view that it needs substantial changes. He never acknowledges that the model is recognized by most as world leading, and its been so beneficial for women and keeping poverty levels low, and its universality a huge strength. Its also cost effective compared too other countries. However he is always full of ideas, statistics, and a consistent writer with many thoughtful comments, never to be ignored. His ability to produce week after week, excellent articles is profound.
