Economic Bill of Rights
How can we have a free democracy when 90% of us are reduced to the status of economic slaves to private corporations and the political elite? Any effective Constitution for 21st century Aotearoa MUST INCLUDE AN ECONOMIC BILL OF RIGHTS. 1.

The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home orabroad; 5. The right of every family to a decent home; 6. The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health; 7. The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness,accident, and unemployment; 8. The right to a good education; 9.
