Well, it's a fair price to send Uncle Helen off to the United Nations isn't it? A few stories are out today concerning Liarbour's beloved Emissions Taxation Scam, which is set to be passed tomorrow. The Dominion-Post today notes the cost to the public. The scheme will cost households about $3000 a year by 2025, according to a report by the Institute of Economic Research. Day-to-day costs such as power bills, petrol, disposing of rubbish, and buying milk are all set to rise under the scheme. There could also be big job losses and a drop in wages of about $90 a week. Businesses say they are facing huge costs as a result of the legislation. Brian Fallow at the NZ Herald also offers a worthy analysis of the costs and hwo he sysem will operate. And while Colin James offers some criticism over National flip-flopping over the issue, he also criticises Liarbour for not forging a consensus over the policy. Either way, as the Hive notes, it is hard to truly jude the cost of the ETS beause no-one knows what the cost of carbon will be.
