In this successor to Dalziel and Lattimore's successful The New Zealand Macroeconomy, the authors provide a concise introduction to the contemporary New Zealand economy as we enter 'the Asian era'. The authors interpret data on key economic indicators over time to make sense of the structure and performance of New Zealand's contemporary economy in a historical and global context. The New Zealand Economy covers major contemporary economic issues: globalisation and the rise of the Asian economies, the origins and consequences of the global financial crisis and current concerns about growth and productivity. Rich with local data and case studies, The New Zealand Economy is an ideal supplementary text for undergraduates and MBA students as well as a pocket primer for New Zealanders involved in business and policy. Graphs and tables in the book will be updated quarterly and posted on the internet. Also incudes appendices/case studies by Professors Gary Hawke and Philip McCann.
"To go through five editions of a book in New Zealand indicates the authors must be doing something right. What they seem to be doing right is producing a book that is short, clearly and concisely written and consequently very accessible to a considerable target audience--those doing an economics course in the last years of high school and the first years of university." --Simon Chapple, "Social Policy Journal", on "The New Zealand Macroeconomy"
