In this week’s New Zealand Initiative podcast, the delayed election is finally decided. But the next term for a Labour majority government will be tough as it wrestles with the consequences of Covid-19. It needs some good ideas.

Eric Crampton has a few of those good ideas. He says focusing on reopening the border, setting up better incentives for more housing and relying on the beautiful mechanism of the emissions trading scheme will all be key policies to help get New Zealand back on track.
