Te Puni Kōkiri hopes its contribution to Treasury’s proposed Living Standards Framework will help other government agencies measure the impact of their policies on Māori.

The framework is an attempt to measure wellbeing by getting beyond standard economic measures like gross domestic product.

TPK’s indigenous Approach paper has been added to the discussion papers on the Treasury website.

Deputy director Di Grennell says it draws on the work of thinkers like Professor Sir Mason Durie and Rose Pere, and was reviewed by the Māori Economic Development Advisory Board members Graham Smith, Manuka Henare, and Ganesh Nana.

She says the Living Standards Framework will become a tool kit to help government set targets and measures.

"We would argue that a Māori world view, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, a whānau centered approach haven't been sufficiently applied to those government processes so we are setting a platform that can enable that thinking to be used and applied in a practical way as departments and agencies and Treasury go about their business," Ms Grenell says.

I will continue writing about the state taking children until something meaningful has occurred
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: If you have the privilege of a platform, you must endeavour to use that platform for good. I have written previous columns about the extraordinary abuse of power by the state when they take children into their 'care'.
State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
