Media coverage of COVID-19

Infometrics has also provided significant evidenced-based insights on the COVID-19 pandemic, and the responses to the pandemic, from an economic viewpoint. During times of uncertainty and crisis, it is important that the business community, and wider society, have access to easily understood and factual analysis.

Senior Economist Brad Olsen is leading Infometrics’ COVID-19 media communications, and is available for comment on +64 21 253 5646 or Brad.Olsen@Infometrics.co.nz.

As economists, we focus on examining the economic effects of policies, and provide advice based on current settings. In doing so, economists should and do stay clear of commenting too broadly on actual pandemic planning and actions, leaving that to health experts who are best placed to provide expert views. For the latest advice from the New Zealand Government, please go to covid19.govt.nz

A range of media stories that Infometrics has provided comments for are listed below:
