It is heartening to see that New Zealand has a government containing many ministers with business ability.
In contrast the old Helengrad regime appeared bereft of anyone who had experience of wealth creation.
As we know to our great expense, Liarbour was noted for spending money rather than creating it.
I find it reassuring that we have a Prime Minister who is a man with deep and successful experience of those financial markets many blame for causing the credit crunch.
I am sure we are in better hands because of it, rather than have our economy ran on the nostrums of a failed academic like Clark or Cullen.
Now, the issue of business experience among ministers has again arisen thanks to a column in Britain's Daily Mail which says none of the British ministers have business experience.
Of course, we shouldn't always belittle those with other backgrounds and experiences.
But if we are to have a government that can help remedy the economic tough times we face, I think we will have more success with a government of many talents and backgrounds, and understanding of the wider world, than we had under the old regime who had few or no such people and was so dominated by academics and trades unionists and had probably never created a cent of wealth in their entire lives!
