- ItemSegues and Synergies: Feminist Economics and Occupational Scientists Meet Human Rights(Taylor & Francis, 2016-12-01) Waring, MHow do the international rules of work and economic activity treat occupation? What work is constantly absent from the data base for determining public resource allocations and investments? What occupies those whose work is unpaid? Is this work visible in occupational science research? This essay addresses links between feminist economics and unpaid work, and occupation science and over occupation, through a human rights lens. It proposes opportunities for political economists and occupational scientists to work together on these issues.

David Wilson The Institute of Public Policy's Director, David Wilson. That’s the message from Business and Economic Research Limited (BERL) and the AUT Institute of Public Policy’s (IPP) latest economic forecast for Auckland. The second report in the quarterly series was launched today and forecast some improvements in various sectors but continued slow growth or the status quo in others. In summary BERL forecasts for Auckland:a marginally brighter picture for manufacturing exports; but a difficult year for exporters selling to the US and European markets, modest (at best) employment growth; another ‘stand still’ year for the retail sector; considerable growth in house building activity but overall only “catching up” to lost activity; net migration gains in the short term, but easing over the medium to longer term as Aucklanders look to greener pastures across the ditch
- ItemThe Auckland economy: situation and forecast, November 2009(BERL Economics and Institute of Public Policy, AUT University, 2009-11) Nana, G; Sanderson, K; Leung-Wai, J; Shirley, I; Wilson, D; Neill, CM; Slack, A; Stokes, F; Norman, D; Lynn, ABERL and the Institute of Public Policy at Auckland University of Technology (AUT) have combined to pull together an economic forecast for the Auckland region economy. Latest employment data released last week confirm that the much-heralded end of the recession remains little more than a technicality. This is as true for the Auckland economy as it is for its national counterpart. The net 13,000 jobs shed from the Auckland economy over the past year mean annual employment contracted by nearly 3 percent over that period. Looking ahead, hopes of an export-led recovery for the New Zealand economy have been dashed by an exchange rate that defies any rational assessment of the fundamentals. Consequently, the short-term outlook for the Auckland economy is best described as unstable. Clearly, the next few months will be better than the first half of 2009, but there will be little to celebrate. We forecast: a sombre export picture for manufacturing; modest, at best, employment growth; a subdued outlook for retail trade; import growth slightly above national; net inward migration gains; moderate house price growth; growth in house building activity; guest nights treading water.
