Boats as vessels to export oil. Let’s do the math again with billionaire Graeme Hart‘s shipping politics observations (check out link).
Exporting oil is another way of “printing money” – it’s just super harsh on the environment. A ship full of oil in exchange for some pine trees’ paper, printed with ink, as foreign currency?
Is that a good trade for New Zealand?
Or should NZ just swap NZ’s oil for foreign land lots instead – of the same value? That could be more real.
What do you think in this age of over-printed fake currency circulating in the world?

No surprises here: Wall Street junkies and those who live off the wall are going gaga over Mitt Romney‘s presidential campaign chances on Wall Street.
[Already, New Zealand needs more marine surveillance technology to reduce "vexatious" demand on Aotearoa's sustainable fish oil levels and to help "exhonerate" our Ross seas conservation planning efforts ahead. All while easing the wailing. We must put that on our curriculum of stuff to plan for in key marine charter schools engineering planning].
Blimey! On ya.

Australia’s favorite media game to play is What Gina did next. As iron sands, boat building, twisted steel and adequate maritime surveillance all kinda go together, we should be thinking more along those lines maybe.

While Australia’s PM is out of the country in Mexico, the Sydney Morning Herald, zoom Australia in, to the world of Gina Reinhart, Australia’s richest women.
I always find Reinhart difficult to take seriously. Simply because, it is 100% wrong, that one person can have as much access to mineral resources of Australia as Reinhart has been allowed, than all other Australians, especially Australia’s Aboriginal peoples.
Reinhart was born into the wealth. So, I look at her as a 100% construct of wealth, created by both her father and the Australian government, for such a time as this. When I get around that, I more look for the wisdom in the person, whose wealth is a magnate to attract information in the world.
Gina Rinehart sits at the helm of a corporate empire that, if publicly listed, would rival Woolworths, Wesfarmers and Woodside Petroleum among the top 10 companies by market value in Australia, writes The Australian.
Here’s a bit from SMH: “Today, having stayed in the shadows for almost a decade after signing a peace deal with her stepmother, Rose Porteous, and sorting out the family empire and the business, she is now on the brink of a new phase in her evolution. Gina’s financial success has brought with it political clout and a willingness to use it.
However, her desire for public influence is undercut by her refusal to properly engage with the media. Journalist Tim Treadgold argues that at some point Gina will either have to come out in the open, or retreat behind her wall of money.
