‘High net worth’ tourists is a bullshit phrase beloved of Tourism Minister Stuart Nash.
It’s the sort of phrase that would have disgusted Mickey Savage, hero of the Jacinda Ardern and first Labour Party PM.
What this phrase means to the so-called ‘influencers’ (another bullshit word) is the super rich.
The ‘high net worth’ people we should be sorrying about is the Young of this country, and overseas, who have to try to do something about the Planet these ‘high net worth’ folks have almost ruined.
The super rich can look after themselves quite well. Personally, I don’t care whether they come here or spend their millions in Timbuktu.
