Wikipedia describes Rogernomics as follows;
The term Rogernomics, a portmanteau of “Roger” and “economics”, was created by analogy with Reaganomics to describe the economic policies followed by New Zealand Finance Minister Roger Douglas from his appointment in 1984. The policies included cutting agricultural subsidies and trade barriers, privatising public assets and the control of inflation through measures rooted in monetarism, and were regarded in some quarters of Douglas’s New Zealand Labour Party as a betrayal of traditional Labour ideals. The Labour Party subsequently retreated from pure Rogernomics, which became a core doctrine of ACT.
In other words it’s mostly economic reform inspired by classical liberalism as it happened in New Zealand in the 1980s. Roger Douglas left the New Zealand parliament at the end of 1988, so this it all old news perhaps, however it may get a new run in the New Zealand media given the following news about ACT;
The Act Party is almost certain to return to Parliament with leader Rodney Hide holding a huge lead in the Epsom electorate race, internal polling obtained by the National Business Review suggests.
Mr Hide needs to keep the Epsom seat to ensure that Act makes it into Parliament. If he wins Epsom, Act will get its full share of the party vote represented in Parliament without having to reach the 5% threshold under MMP.
Act has consistently polled under 5% since the last election, but has tracked up slightly in recent polls to between 1.5% and 2.5%. That would bring two more Act MPs into Parliament – useful for National in forming a government, as the election race looked to tighten up even before a difficult week and a half for that party.
The article suggests that not only will ACT get Rodney Hide returned to parliament (he is number one one on the party list but will win the seat of Epson independent of the party list) but it will get two others into parliament as well. What the article doesn’t mension is that the number three candidate on the ACT party ticket is one Roger Douglas.
