Australian View Of NZ Treasury

From Fran O'Sullivan this morning

Within Australian senior circles, the NZ Treasury is seen as something of a wallflower - a department that is publicly whipped into submission by Cullen whenever it has promoted obvious economic boosters like personal tax cuts.

We think this a bit harsh, but certainly feel that Treasury is not the department it once was, and it has dropped the ball big time of the Emissions Trading Scheme.
