Treasury Releases MARCH Working Papers

Treasury Releases MARCH Working Papers

The Treasury today released four working papers in the March instalment of its Working Papers series.

This quarter’s set of papers includes:

The Effects on New Zealand Households of an Increase in the Petrol Excise Tax (Paper 04/01) Theories of the Family and Policy (Paper 04/02) Youth Minimum Wage Reform and the Labour Market (Paper 04/03) Healthy, wealthy and wise? A review of the wider benefits of education (Paper 04/04)

A full list of the abstracts from the four papers follows.

The papers can all be found at http://www.treasury.govt.nz/workingpapers

The Treasury Working Papers series contains work in progress on a variety of economic and financial issues. The series aims to help to increase understanding of Treasury and its work, and to make this work available to a larger audience. The working papers build internal capability, as well as generating more informed debate on key issues. The series has been running since 1998.

The views expressed in the Working Papers are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the New Zealand Treasury. The papers are presented not as policy, but with a view to inform and stimulate wider debate.
