We join all of New Zealand, and the world, in mourning the tragic events of last Friday. A day that will be etched in pain on New Zealand's history, but will not change what New Zealand is. 

In this month's newsletter Brad Olsen takes a look at another vunerable sector of our society: those on the supported living payment, and why the SLP needs a re-think.

We introduce Merzan Wadia, a new economist on our team, with his article on New Zealand’s self-employment rate. You can read more about Merzan in our regular feature: A day in the life of an Economist.
