Welcome to the September 6 edition of Tony Alexander's Weekly Overview



Still awaiting news offshore - quiet in NZ

This is the first Thursday of the month so we are running our confidence survey. If you have a minute feel free to click on the link here and let me know whether you reckon the NZ economy will be in better or worse shape in a year’s time. Many thanks.


Data on the NZ economy was thin on the ground this week but next week we will get an updated set of economic forecasts from the Reserve Bank and a review of the cash rate. The rate will be left unchanged at 2.5% and their outlook for our economy is likely to be positive but with a warning bout developments overseas.

Links included in this weeks issue are the following.
