DomPost front page 2 September

Off comedy for a moment, was just curious about the front page article on the Dominion Post this morning: http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/local/4081534/US-billionaire-in-deal-to-buy-a-big-slice-of-Kiwi-paradise

Maybe I’m a little cynical but I got the impression that the DomPost were trying to stir some sort of controversy, Americans coming over here, taking our land. However I wonder, without that foreign investment coming in, where was the money supposed to come from to develop that resort? And without that resort, who would be employing the (presumably) New Zealand helicopter pilot, and who would pay for the produce for the meals, or pay the landscapers and gardeners? Also I imagine most of the building materials would have been sourced locally as well as most of the builders, electricians, plumbers etc. I’ve probably missed something somewhere, anyone know more about this?
