What Labour wants to do with the reserve bank:

  • The Reserve Bank would be allowed to change the KiwiSaver rate to control inflation instead of solely raising interest rates
  • KiwiSaver, as previously announced, would be universal
  • The Reserve Bank's objective would be broadened beyond inflation and price stability so it could help achieve economic growth and job creation
  • It would be allowed to use existing tools differently so that it could help exporters and home owners
  • The Reserve Bank would continue to be independent.
  • A capital gains tax would be introduced, as previously announced.
