New NZ economics blog: Economics NZ

I was excited to see Eric mention that there was a new economics (Economics New Zealand) blog by Donal Curtin – welcome welcome!!

I mentioned the blog last week when talking about the NZAE 2013 conference, with Donal providing feedback on two of the keynotes (Obstfeld and Quiggin).  However I’ll be sure to keep an eye on the posts to see what other exciting stuff turns up!

Donal was Chief Economists at BNZ from 1990-1994, and comes with an extremely strong reputation for the analysis of economic ideas.  As a result, he is a high powered addition to the “NZ econblogging” fraternity.  I hope to see more of you New Zealand economists that are sneaking around the internet turn up and join us in writing publicly about economic ideas!
