In this month’s newsletter, Andrew Whiteford looks at the difficulties in predicting regional population growth, and the importance of good population estimates for planning.

We interview Andrew Beattie, a new economist to our team. In this issue, Andrew has written an article about New Zealand’s treatment of the plastic issue, and how we deal with our recycling.

Both our latest Forecasts and Quarterly Economic Monitor are available to subscribers via our website portal. Brad Olsen highlights the importance of government spending to economic growth, and what options are available to New Zealand

And finally, we round out with a map created by David Friggens, that gives some perspective on the size of Auckland relative to the rest of the country.

In this issue:
