Conversations about the economic future of New Zealand

BY The Policy Observatory

In July and August The Policy Observatory will host a series of conversations about the future of the New Zealand economy. Chaired by Rod Oram, each event covers a different topic: the future of trade in a world with the re-emergence of nationalist populism and where voters are sceptical of big trade deals; the balance between the ‘seed’ economy and the ‘bubble’ economy in New Zealand and how to shift that balance towards a focus on long-term prosperity and away from short-term booms; and the opportunities and threats posed by big data for economic and public policy.
