Moving on from New Zealand’s productivity paradox
For many years New Zealand’s productivity performance has been disappointing. The authors outline recent progress in understanding what could be driving this performance. They draw on Statistics New Zealand industry-level data, before summarising insights from firm-level research using linked data sets (the Longitudinal Business Database (LBD)). They conclude with a high-level summary of directions of reform that could help improve New Zealand’s productivity performance.
