61st Annual Conference of the New Zealand Association of Economists
Victoria University Wellington
30th June – 2nd July 2020
It is my pleasure to invite you to Wellington for the 61st Annual Conference of the New Zealand Association of Economists. The Association brings together economists and researchers from academia, government and private sectors to provide an opportunity for stimulating discussion on important issues facing New Zealand.
This year we welcome four distinguished keynote speakers: Andrew Clark, Warwick McKibbin, John Creedy, and Marjan van den Belt. Andrew (Paris School of Economics) works at the interface between psychology, sociology and economics to provide insights into social interactions and social learning. Warwick (Australian National University) is internationally renowned for his contributions to global economic modeling and the theory of monetary policy. John (Victoria University of Wellington) has made important contributions to the study of public economics, labour economics and income distribution in New Zealand. Marjan (Terra Moana Ltd, ReGenSEA) is an ecological economist actively engaged in helping organisations and community’s transition towards a sustainability perspective using regenerative economics. The diversity of their insights, together with those of our other conference contributors, will ensure that the conference appeals to a broad spread of interests.
A dedicated conference committee is working to bring you this event: Ian Duncan (Independent Consultant), John Saunders (Lincoln University), Julia Talbot-Jones (Victoria University of Wellington) and I are aptly supported by the expertise of OnCue and Motu.
I wish to acknowledge the financial support of our major sponsors. The support of Treasury, the Reserve Bank, and Statistics New Zealand enables us to host highly-regarded overseas speakers to provide keynote addresses. The support of Victoria University of Wellington in hosting our meeting is also greatly appreciated.
Your contribution is valued. By coming to the conference, sharing your research and engaging with other participants, you are contributing to the success of the conference, the Association and the economics profession in New Zealand. I am sure that you will find it enjoyable and worthwhile.
