Description
Prime Minister John Key observes over the farm fence two pigs dancing on a field of banknotes. The pigs represent 'Foreign film makers' and 'Finance companies.' He says 'Look how much happier they are when they're well fed and free from constraints.' Context: Refers to bankrolling finance companies after they have collapsed. Deposits in South Canterbury Finance jumped 25 per cent and another finance company accepted more than $7 million flow because investors chased higher returns when they realised the Government would return their money if riskier finance companies fell over. Refers also to the amount of financial support given to Warner Brothers to persuade them to make Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' in New Zealand. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
