Parliament is urgently debating a bill that will make law a new top tax rate of 39 per cent – one of Labour’s key campaign promises.

The tax hike will only apply to the top 2 per cent of income earners.

But a regulatory impact assessment from IRD has said that the tax will only have a tiny impact on inequality in New Zealand.

The Prime Minister has declared a 'climate emergency' to recognise the 'devastating impact' extreme weather will have on New Zealand, and the 'alarming' loss of species. 

But while most industrial countries have reduced emissions in the last decades, New Zealand has seen some of the biggest increases in greenhouse gases. Nearly half of New Zealand's emissions come from agriculture, followed by energy - mostly transport.

ANALYSIS: With tension escalating between China and members of the Five Eyes security alliance, most recently over a Chinese tweet that used a doctored image to attack Australia, New Zealand is arguably in a prime position to broker a kind of truce.
