    Not a problem and of course it’s never to late :)
    This is a really good community online.

    Well, moviated,
    Funny that you say it is not a scam, but you also posted the site on more than one thread in this forum, and you do not specify your gender. Are you afraid to?

    I did manage to get into the site earlier to check it out, didn’t like what I saw, it must be down now as neither Firefox nor Safari would open it.

    Further to my comment, the site is an American one and it ends in .com not .co.nz

    I would be interested to know then, if you personally have made any decent money from the site working from home. As most of my experience with work from home schemes don’t tell you that you actually have to pay up front to join them, until the very last minute, or when you phone them they say you have to buy an info pack, and that you have to advertise on websites and in newspapers.

    No, it goes to the .com site, and you have not answered my question.

    So, how do you get on for paying TAX on your earnings when you do whatever it is that you do in your business? Not that I am in any way interested in doing it, just curious as to how things work in regards to that.

    I don’t know what Jens’ hobby horse is but his misrepresentations cannot go unchallenged. Yes the fund is mainly required to assist the country through the baby boomer bulge, but that’s what it is – a bulge. When the bulge is over, the number of superannuitants compared with those of working age will be manageable again. The fund will still exist so current taxpayers, who include boomers, should have no fear as their kids provision will be even more secure – unless ACT or National sabotage it like they did last time and which is the greatest part of why we lag so far behind Aussie now.

    Mr Blobby – taxpayer contributions to the NZSF as it is at present, are to be terminated in the middle 2030s, after which the NZSF is running down, even though the proportion of longer living superannuitants will still remain higher than what it was before the baby boomer bulge.
    That’s why there is a good case for amending it into a permanent institution of Personal Accounts, to keep the taxpayer hand-to-mouth super financing relief going forever, together with the economic benefit of the long term investment being kept going by continuing NZSF accumulation.

    im about to grizzle about the retirement age going up, because they cant afford us oldies and can safe millions by doing this ……. ok what about putting the dole age up to 20 and saving many more millions …. or better still … only allowing them on the dole for 3 months then make them get jobs, even if its scrubbing dunnies like some of us had to do (when dole wasnt there)

    NEMSA, I agree with you – but instead of grizzling, why not join forces and publicize the constructive effort of increasing – all-inclusively, with even dole receivers participating through a proportion of GST they pay – towards accumulating NZSF retirement accounts, which – being very long term savings – will also double up as productivity increasing investments for the benefit of all?
    Wouldn’t that convert our relative pessimism at present (like failing to keep up with Australia) into a surge of energetic, new wealth creative optimism?
