15 January 2019

The latest NZIER Quarterly Survey of Business Opinion (QSBO) shows businesses remained downbeat about the economy in the final quarter of 2018, but less so. The results can be summarised as “less gloomy” rather than “more happy”, with a net 18 percent of businesses expecting general economic conditions to worsen over the coming months. This is a decline from the net 28 percent of businesses who had expected a worsening in the previous quarter.
