PUBLIC ACCESS:
Economic Talks

At Infometrics, we’re often found discussing the latest economic trends among the team, keeping our finger on the pulse of the New Zealand economy. At a time when the economy is still in a state of change, analysis of what’s happening becomes even more important. So we’ve decided to start recording our “Economic Talks” and publish them for clients and the public to access.

Tune in to economic insights from Infometrics Chief Forecaster Gareth Kiernan and Principal Economist Brad Olsen on what’s got our team talking.
