This month, we introduce Senior Economist Nick Brunsdon, who has recently joined our regional economics team. We’ve put him to work early, with Nick writing two articles for this newsletter. 

Nick takes a look at measuring the economic impact of events around New Zealand, and some of the things to consider. Then, as a keen DIYer, Nick examines the size of New Zealand houses, finding that we’re building smaller, with the average dwelling now being 174m2 in size.

Our July forecasts are available now.  Chief Forecaster Gareth Kiernan highlights that the outlook for the economy is a long, slow, slowdown, with a risk that consumers are the next economic pillar to fall.

Finally, Brad Olsen highlights the gap between Maori and non-Maori education outcomes in our regular 'Chart of the Month' feature.
