Both, the Labour-led government and the opposition National Party have recently announced they plan to charge returning Kiwis for their stay in managed isolation.
On July 29, 2020, Megan Woods, the minister in charge of managed isolation facilities, announced new legislation that would allow the government to charge some people arriving in New Zealand. Woods proposes to levy a fee of $3,100 for the first adult in a room, $950 for every additional adult, and $475 every additional child. She puts forward only to charge temporary entrants and returnees who left after the legislation came into force.
keeping in mind the price elasticity of demand and supply, EXPLAIN how the proposed managed isolation fee legislation will affect travel decisions of New Zealanders and NZ permanent residents and how it will affect the airlines, and what will be its implication for fairness in New Zealand society? Lastly, are the New zealand government's plans beneficial for society? In what way would the opposition's plans be better? In what way would it be worse?
