Increasingly, reports are coming from the worlds biggest media outlets about the rich and powerful looking at New Zealand as a bolthole from catastrophe. The New Yorker published a high society piece describing how the mention of New Zealand has become synonymous with a ‘getaway’ destination – in the truest sense of the word; the Bloomberg published a piece about survival bunker companies shipping installations to NZ; the topic reached new levels of visibility when Christiane Amanpour asked Jacinda Ardern about “all of these billionaires who look at New Zealand as a doomsday refuge for themselves”, during a CNN interview. Yet, despite all the hubbub, so far NZ journalists have come up empty handed in their search for these bunkers. VICE journalist Baz Macdonald searches for evidence of the survival bunkers being shipped here, as well as looking at the factors causing this rise in paranoia among the rich and the effect this rhetoric has on the people and place of Aotearoa.
