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, make this work available to a larger audience and to generate 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 view of the New Zealand Treasury. The papers are presented not as policy, but with a view to inform and stimulate wider debate.
