This time around it’s Geoff Simmons at the helm.

For a podcast that's often focused on personal growth, in this episode we're talking economic growth!This month in New Zealand the Tax Working Group released their report and home owners held their breath.There it was....a recommendation for a capital gains tax on property sales. There were a host of other recommendations of course, but they were drowned out and seldom debated.So is this the best we can do? My guest this week was asking the same question.Geoff Simmons is the leader of The Opportunities Party and took part in discussions around the country to present an answer. If you've been looking for a long form, in depth discussion about how we look at fairness, taxation and the long term prosperity of New Zealand, I'm hoping you now have a place to start!
