The development of the New Zealand approach to wellbeing

Tony Burton (Deputy Chief Economist, New Zealand Treasury)

The recent advances that lead to the current government adopting Treasury's work were based on a fundamental rethink that lead to greater use being made of work by the OECD follow on from 2009's report by Sen, Stiglitz and Fittoussi. This talk will describe the New Zealand Treasury's work including why the approach is important despite the challenges, what we learned from mistakes over the last 10 years, the work that built up to the "wellbeing budget", the potential pitfalls and suggested further developments needed to realise the full benefits of a wellbeing approach.
