Deloitte Budget commentary — 26 May 2016

Budget 2016: Are we setting the right course? Deloitte's Perspective >

Finance Minister Bill English has delivered Budget 2016 to the nation. His eighth Budget confirms the government’s books are in relatively good shape – at least for now. But a combination of factors, including our ageing population, will impose huge fiscal pressure on the country in the coming decades. How does Budget 2016 position New Zealand’s economy for success in the long term?

We’ve also taken a closer look at the Maori economy and suggested a framework for measuring social outcomes as the social investment approach becomes a more mainstream way of working in the public sector.
