The New Zealand economy is starting to get going again, but as the global economy falters, concerns remain over the slow path to recovery. With an eye to this recovery, Brad Olsen examines how industries may have started to recover by 2025, finding it slow going for some.

Andrew Whiteford analyses how regional inequality has continued its downwards trajectory in New Zealand, but questions what might happen in a post-pandemic era.

Brad dives into a comparison of New Zealand’s infrastructure spending compared to other countries, finding a continued underinvestment over the last 30 years, amid no real progress to bring shovel-ready projects into action.

Finally, Alistair Schorn rounds out the newsletter with a Chart of the Month that shows the divergence between airline fortunes and the tech sector as video communication takes off (or rather, stays at home) in the time of COVID-19.
