BNZ (twice), Air New Zealand, finance firms, leaky homes, AMI. Sir Roger Douglas called for the AMI support package to be conditional on the Government declaring that this will be the final such act of largesse. But if the Government were to make such a declaration it would have the credibility of a chronic drunk swearing off the booze. Repeated bailouts have created an environment where poor decisions are not punished but rewarded. The AMI board and management need to account for their performance, and prudent insurers should benefit from an influx of customers. This is what is meant to happen in a capitalist economy. (Damien Grant - AMI bail out rewards poor business practice in NZ Herald 24 April 2011)
