I have been researching the question of why New Zealand has been so well, commo, under their female pm. The reason is, that they are commo! To see this let us go back to the beginnings of scarf-wearing Jacinda Ardern’s regime:
“New Zealand's new prime minister called capitalism a "blatant failure", before citing levels of homelessness and low wages as evidence that "the market has failed" her country's poor. Jacinda Ardern, who is to become the nation's youngest leader since 1856, said measures used to gauge economic success "have to change" to take into account "people's ability. They will be supported by the liberal Greens. New Zealanders had been waiting since 23 September to find out who would govern their country after national elections ended without a clear winner. Ms Ardern has pledged her government will increase the minimum wage, write child poverty reduction targets into law, and build thousands of affordable homes.”
The 37-year-old will take office next month after the populist New Zealand First party. The chase goes even deeper into the rabbit burrow, as we follow the Chinese money trail:
To save reading time let me summarise; China’s influence is so great in Australia and New Zealand that the US papers and security agencies are calling it for what it is, a threat to US security, with local elites, such as the intelligentsia simply going along for the ride. Speaking of rides this is where we get back to Ms Ardern and US security concerns:
“An influential United States Congress hearing has been told "one of the major fundraisers for Jacinda Ardern's party" is linked to the Chinese Communist Party and it showed China had penetrated New Zealand's political networks. As a result, US lawmakers needed to consider whether New Zealand should be kicked out of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance because of problems at its "political core". The bombshell testimony included claims from a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst that "anything on China that was briefed to Bill English was briefed to Mr Yang Jian", the National MP revealed last year as having trained spies for China. The hearing of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission was aimed at gathering evidence on China's relationship with traditional US allies. UN Senator James Talent - once touted as Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of Defence - raised concerns about "a sharp rise in political donations" from Chinese Government-backed bodies to political parties in Australia and New Zealand. China's actions included getting people linked to the Communist Party or People's Liberation Army elected and had made it worth the while of political figures "to parrot its line on issues it deems important".
This explains everything, perhaps better than the psychological hypothesis:
