In 2014 only NZ First and the NZ Conservative Party (of Centre Right Political Parties) supported regulating loan sharks. (see here)
 Loan sharks prey on peoples nature to buy something on credit that generally they cannot afford.
 The people using loan sharks who are generally on lower incomes pay very high rates of interest which only add to their poor monetary situation.
 To not regulate Loan Sharks means they are free to contribute to some families poverty situation.


Commentary on Loan Sharks

Source Wikipedia

A loan shark is a person or body who offers loans at extremely high interest rates.[1][2] The term usually refers to illegal activity, but may also refer to predatory lending with extremely high interest rates such as payday or title loans. Loan sharks sometimes enforce repayment by blackmail or threats of violence. Historically, many moneylenders skirted between legal and extralegal activity. In the recent western world, loan sharks have been a feature of the criminal underworld.
