No, I haven't lived there. I was considering what I read about New Zealand, being relatively pro-free market even under Labour, and now the ACT is in the government.

Furthermore, the Heritag Economic Freedom Index ranks them consistently high: http://www.heritage.org/index/Ranking.aspx

The Ease of Doing Business is second only to Singapore

On the outside those things appear to be true, much of why I chose NZ.

Since Helen Brown fell from power some things have definitely improved to be sure but the way NZ is governed you would always be one vote away from a return to form and even worse than before. Of particular concern is the Moari issue which is a constant social & fiscal threat.

Peter Cresswell has a good blog covering the economic, social & political situation in NZ from a Capitalist perspective. All the recent blogs are World Cup oriented but you'll find useful things in the archive.
