    Default What you and I mean to New Zealand

    Over at another site (whose name I won't mention) I came across this link:

    Fiscal impacts of immigration 2005/06 - Fiscal Impact - NZ Department of Labour

    Here's an interesting figure for us to ponder:

    The net fiscal impact of the migrant population was $3,288m. This indicates that the migrant population's contribution to government revenue exceeded government expenditure on the migrant population. This compares to a net $2,838m for the New Zealand-born population.
    Migrants, who make up less than 25% of the population, contribute more taxes to New Zealand than the 75% of the population that was born here.

    Kind of puts this in a different perspective, doesn't it?
