As I have suggested that everyone else puts in a submission to “Indicators Aotearoa” I thought I should as well – and that for kicks I would share it with you.
Now such a process is a representation of the views and values I have – not an example of economics. I am not submitting my views on this as an economist, I am submitting it as a person – the fact that I have studied economics does not gives my values any more weight, it just gives me a neat language that allows me to clearly articulate those values.
In case this also sounds to critical I would like to point out that this is a cool idea, I like how easy they have made the process, and how they are making us all feel appreciated about giving our feedback – good work Statistics NZ! The discussion is supposed to be constructive here, that is my goal 🙂
So with that in mind, give it a read below – or as a pdf (MN Indicators submission):
