This 2017 article is a timely reminder re both the substance and complexity of New Zealand Superannuation. Contains some excellent references, and always be aware of the single issue commentator and those who adopt crisis rhetoric on the topic.
Here is hoping the Retirement Commissioner is developing an extensive body of knowledge on the topic she and her team must be research experts on NZ Super and comparative analysis aware of what’s sound and what’s unsound using OECD countries , Chile, Scandinavian experience to assist policy development.
Its a worry when you hear the likes of Heather du Plessis-Allen, Mike Hosking, Cameron Bagrie and Larry Williams commenting on NZ retirement income issues, limited knowledge, loud voices!!!
