Once a start up gets to a certain level, it’s wise to reduce debt and save.
Online… Reduce your businesses debt is the advice of Gill South in biz school class today.–Link2it.
Also: A dollar saved is a dollar earned. Turning lights can equate to savings in time. You don’t need to spell 100% right to be a good business person. Be good with numbers, or, pay someone to help your business who is good at reading contracts and doing the books honestly.

In nations that pay people wages of US$36k or less (NZ is one of those nations)… if young people want to get ahead… they need to do what the old rich folks are doing.
Or you can make gains on the stock market. Yet it can be risky terrain. The older sharks have the tip offs, often long before the younger sharks do, so shark chomping is the game.
Yet for some young people… the markets of NZ are seen as okay to invest in for a start. Milford Asset Management writes an article to entice, incite, encourage young investors to ‘give it a go.’ Here’s those thoughts.
*You should always have a diversified share portfolio.
*The stock market isn’t a gamble as long as you pick good companies that will do well over the longer term.
*Good companies usually increase their dividends every year.
*You have to research a company before you invest. (more…)

Crazy Economic Data: New Zealand recorded its fourth monthly trade deficit in a row due to a drop in exports of dairy products and crude oil, and resulting in a wider-than-expected annual gap.
The trade deficit was $700 million in November, widening from $666 million in October and from $577 million in the same month a year earlier, according to Statistics New Zealand. The annual deficit widened to $1.46 billion from $1.33 billion in the 12 months through October and from a small surplus in the same period a year earlier.
The annual trade gap exceeded the $1.34 billion forecast in a Reuters survey of seven economists. Exporters are having to cope with the headwinds of a New Zealand dollar that broke above 84 US cents overnight and has appreciated by 7.2 per cent on a trade-weighted basis in the past 12 months.

New Zealand’s economy 2013: Those living on the wall increased wealth 25% last year on New Zealand’s NZX. The trading year 2013 is also off to a solid start.
The problem is… if everyone’s living off the wall, or doing rental properties only… and we have an increasingly ageing population t00…. who’s growing the next level of the economy? Right! Not enough people are. It’s dangerous as then we see natural resources sales… as a quick solution to solve our lack of creativity that is sustainable. (more…)

"The big trouble with the rat race is that even if you do win — you’re still a freaking rat.”
Maori News: New reports values Ngāti Porou (the local Maori tribe of Gisborne, New Zealand’s) economy at $300m. An independent report by the Bureau of Economic Research has valued the Ngāti Porou economy at $300 million. But leaders of the tribe say they need to do more to increase that potential for the benefit of all Ngāti Porou.
What could Ngati Porou do? Well they are serious cousins by lineage to Ngai Tahu of the South Island (who’ve earned $900 million)… so say no more. Ngati Porou could learn lots from Ngai Tahu. (more…)
She said: “The Chinese don’t want land, the Chinese want the resources and protein… their middle class is exploding and the one thing the Chinese Government and Chinese companies worry about is disappointing the middle class. So they have to get good quality food and they have to keep providing steel and copper and coal and oil to fuel their economy… we use that word but there are very good Chinese families in New Zealand… [because of anxiety… they’ll come in and say ‘I don’t want a three-year contract, I want a 40-year contract’ … and the reason they’re saying 40 is they’ve got 1.3 billion people and if they run amok and the middle class implodes, that’s a big problem for the Chinese.”

Perhaps twenty year lease options are more advisable than outright land sales? It gives NZ a certain degree of autonomy and rangatiratanga if that is encouraged.
Australian land owners are signing fifty year leases with China for agricultural joint-ventures at the moment. Still retaining land ownership rights long term, is what some Australia’s see as wise.
