The term Rogernomics, a portmanteau of Roger and economics, was created by analogy with Reaganomics to describe the economic policies followed by New Zealand Finance Minister Roger Douglas from his appointment in 1984. In addition to cutting agricultural subsidies and trade barriers, and privatising public assets, the policies included the control of inflation through measures rooted in monetarism and were therefore regarded in some quarters of Douglas's own New Zealand Labour Party as a betrayal of traditional Labour ideals.

The term Rogernomics, a portmanteau of Roger and economics, was created by analogy with Reaganomics to describe the economic policies followed by New Zealand finance minister Roger Douglas from his appointment in 1984.
In addition to the curtailment of agricultural subsidies and the scaling back of trade barriers, these policies included the control of inflation through measures rooted in monetarism and were therefore regarded in some quarters of Douglas's own New Zealand Labour Party as apostasy.

Rogernomics, or the reform of social, political and economic institutions according to free-market principles was a product of the first-past-the-post system.
The heir of Rogernomics and free-market policy in New Zealand is ACT New Zealand, co-founded by Roger Douglas in 1993 to contest the 1996 MMP election.
Given that the most hardcore proponents of "pure Rogernomics" are not actually members of the ACT caucus, it would seem inappropriate for the caucus members to be sent into the public arena defending a policy which they themselves are not entirely convinced is applicable in their current political environment.
