Infometrics Christmas Carol – 2015
Thu 10 Dec 2015 by Gareth Kiernan in Newsletter

Every December Infometrics Director and Chief Forecaster, Gareth Kiernan, gets into the festive spirit and creates a Christmas carol inspired by key events, issues and trends that have shaped the economy over the past year.  Here is the 2015 Christmas carol . . . sung to the tune of O Come All Ye Faithful.

O come, all ye migrants

O come, all ye migrants, More than sixty thousand! O come ye, O come ye to New Zealand; Come and behold the Auckland housing market. O come and buy our houses, O come and buy our houses, O come and buy our houses, And be our landlord!

Milk of the cow, Flowing out of Europe, Low dairy prices have given us a wound; Very dry, El Niño not La Niña. O come and buy our milk, O come and buy our milk, O come and buy our milk, All you can afford!

Spend, Yankee shoppers, Spend, Chinese consumers, Spend, all ye citizens around the world! Global growth must be lifted higher. O come, avoid a slowdown, O come, avoid a slowdown, O come, avoid a slowdown, Let growth press forward!

Tourists, we greet thee, To our happy isles; Students, to thee be all knowledge given! Services export incomes now appearing! O may consumer confidence, O may consumer confidence, O may consumer confidence, Be restored!
