If this is failure, what does success look like?

With the economy continuing to be better than its been for quite some time, the Business Round Table is of course demanding that the government acknowledge that its economic policies are a failure.

But if this is failure, what does "success" look like?

And if that "success" can only be had by a return to the policies of the 90's - policies which have been repeatedly and overwhelmingly rejected by the New Zealand population - then why would we want it? What we have now is good enough - and certainly better for the middle class and the poor than the BRT's alternative.
