    But the CPI is only at circa 1%, so there can't be a problem! At least that's the line my Labour supporting colleagues always produce.

    I don’t pretend to fully understand the causes of inflation but with the workforce across most developed countries now aging, arable farmland likely declining due to drought and a fossil fuel phase-out, women having mostly returned to the workforce surely future inflation is likely to be higher? Yes, you still have technology weighing on inflation, but now you have factors weighing against that.

    In terms of Age demographics, Arable land and Women in workforce etc. it might seem to a casual observer that inflation would also rise now trends have stabilised or are reversing?

    March quarter GDP +1.6% vs. RBNZ estimate -0.6%

    Adrian must really be scratching his head. So concerning that such a fool is in charge of something that is arguably more powerful than what the PM can do.

    Only a fool would think that it is possible to forecast GDP growth (or any other economic parameter) with such a precision - particularly in unprecedented times like this.

    Who did you say thought that the forecast was not good enough?

    I very much doubt even Sammy The Seal would have got it even near right.

    When your job is literally to have your finger on the pulse of the economy this is unacceptable. Decisions are made from their forecasts. When a realistic range of possibilities is say +/- 150bps, a 220bps miss is a shocker.
