A reading of zero means everyone has the same income. A reading of one means one person has everything. China sits in a range from 0.
New Zealanders tend to value modesty and distrust those who talk about their own merits. They especially dislike anyone who seems to consider themselves better than others even if the person in question is demonstrably more talented or successful than others.
Because we dislike superiority and are sensitised to not make ourselves look superior we have difficulty being an effective manager of people we have worked alongside in a business.
This can cost a firm the meta knowledge built up by the advancing individual. Because we tend not to show respect to those who over-achieve we tend to drive them away.
Strategic Issues | Tony Alexander
Because we prefer to keep control and avoid bringing in outside capital the growth in our firms is usually financed out of cash flow and that retards growth. Because we distrust experts we fail to subject our inventions to the analysis and refining needed to reduce the need for trial and error and move them closer to being profitable innovations.
The world may be awash with unemployed people currently. But demographic trends mean that situation will soon change and businesses in New Zealand without a well thought out global recruitment strategy could find themselves again back where they were before the GFC when the unemployment rate was 3.
It means that when there was a dispute involving fishing boats as happened in late with Japan China felt free to restrict exports of rare metals to Japan as punishment for the actions or simply the existence of the dispute in the first place.
New Zealand would be treated in the same way and it is only a question of how often and what routes will exist for solving points of contention as quickly as possible. One important route is to maintain alternatives to China as a key destination for our largely primary exports. That is why reaching trade agreements with other countries is important, but also why getting our brands established and maintained in those markets is necessary. It is not easy to switch from one country to another without both areas of groundwork being laid.
Thus, when disputes arise and our goods get blocked in the ports, to expedite clearance we will need the bargaining chip of being able to shift supply over time to other destinations where people also want the quality safe food products which we produce.
In other words, while for the moment primary producers are queued up waiting for clearance of their applications to export meat to China for instance, they should not abandon the markets which they have been supplying. They will need them as a backstop at some stage.Double Shot Interview with Tony Alexander, Chief Economist of BNZ
The way in which China views trade, tourism, diplomacy in the same light means they will also view any rise in Kiwi nationalistic sentiment against China as part of the way in which NZ wishes to engage with China — an unfriendly way.
Their interpretation will be that NZ does not wish to nicely engage, therefore how can it expect to have quick resolution of trace disputes as part of its engagement? Our trade access to China will be influenced by developments in attitudes and manifestations of those attitudes in New Zealand. Hence the need for a quick apology from former Fonterra Chairman Sir Henry van der Heyden last month after using loose words to highlight corruption problems in China.
Is this a serious issue? One interpretation is that it surely cannot be because when it comes to China NZ has essentially no skeletons in the closet beyond the poll tax imposed in the 19th century for which former Prime Minister Helen Clark apologised.
