I was interested by this article in the NZ Herald about how from 1988 to 2005 labour productivity grew by an average of 2.6 per cent a year in New Zealand compared with 2.3 per cent in Australia.
I wondered if there was a difference between Governments. Well Sage has done the research and shows us:
From 1993 to 2000 productivity growth was a whopping 3.1%. From 2000 to 2005 it was half of that at 1.5%.
