1.40 pm                Immigration, New Zealand, and Growth – Dr Eric Crampton, Chief Economist at The New Zealand Initiative.  Immigration, and immigrants, have taken the blame for a wide range of problems in New Zealand.  Are immigrants really taking all the jobs, and all the houses? Dr Crampton walks through the latest evidence from the New Zealand Initiative’s recent report on immigration. The economic penalties attached to being a small and distant place seem to be increasing. While New Zealand cannot move closer to its trading partners, a growing population can help – and especially if other policies around infrastructure and housing do not work to cross-purposes.
