What are ACT's policies and what do they mean?

If you’re working hard, shouldn’t you be able to spend your money as you wish? At the moment, the government is in the driver’s seat and we’re being taken for a ride.

What you get if you support ACT

If New Zealand is to grow a stronger economy and a global reputation as a nation of opportunity, a review of asset ownership, state expenditure, the tax structure and the regulatory environment is a must.
