Where do we draw the boundary around the Maori Economy?

I've always argued the so-called Maori economy is not just here in Aotearoa but wherever whanau seek to satisfy their needs and wants. Therefore the recent announcement that the Australian government will subsidise 170,000 new homes in Sydney can only further entice Maori offshore. This is no bad thing - lets face it, whoever goes will earn more and be able to do more with whatever discretionary paua they have left after rent, food, transport, hokey pokey icecream and a buzz bar.

After my Marae DIY experience up at Waimako, I can see more of our rangatahi departing our land for elsewhere.

Sigh.
