Buying the Farm

The debate about the Crafar Farms sale has been very interesting, kind of a development studies case study evolving in our back yard. With today's decision by the High Court that the Overseas Investment Office incorrectely applied the conditions of the Overseas Investment Act, the plot thickens. I recommend taking a look at the judge's report, which is relatively short, highly readable and raises some interesting questions.

Thanks for that Simon - have read the report - very interesting. I'm pleased with the decision. The enthusiasm for flogging off land to overseas buyers needs to be curtailed I say.
