April 6 edition of the BNZ Weekly Overview

Welcome to the April 6 edition of the BNZ Weekly Overview.

This week we are running our monthly BNZ Confidence Survey. If time permits please click on the URL below and let us know whether you think the economy will get better or worse over the next 12 months.

More importantly let us know what is happening in your industry right now. These comments are particularly useful at the moment because we know that growth in our economy is currently weak but it is difficult to make any solid statements about how bad that weakness is.

This publication goes to government ministers, Treasury, and the Reserve Bank and one suspects they along with ourselves would like some greater insight into how rapidly our economy is slowing down.
