IV With Geoff Bertram On NZ Electricity System

Geoff Bertram of the Institute For Governance And Policy Studies at Victoria University explains why New Zealand residential power customers are paying twice as much more for their power than 'like' customers in 'like' OECD countries. How has an integrated electricity system built and paid for long ago by our parents and grandparents as a strategic economic and standard of living enabler been turned in to an instrument of stealth tax gathering by voracious, predatory and profiteering Government owned power companies operating in a contrived market without any regulatory oversight? Geoff Bertram was until June 2009 a Senior Lecturer in Economics at Victoria.
