Re: Is New Zealand a 3rd World Country

Re: Is New Zealand a 3rd World Country

I understand what you're saying and I'd say the poverty in US is worse, but you also have to realise NZ never had poverty like it has now. And a country with a pop of 4 million is never going to be...

Re: Is New Zealand a 3rd World Country

Uni students tend to be young and gravitate to same places and share accomodation, which does help. They also tend to pick up part time and seasonal work.

Re: Not so expensive? (grocery comparison)

You seen the price of front loaders compared to top loaders? That's why TL's outstrip FL sales by a country mile. FL's aren't very good for those with back or respitory problems either.
