Welcome to Brian Easton’s Website

I am an independent scholar especially interested in New Zealand. My writings and research are especially concerned with its economics, history, politics, sociology and culture.

This website is to make more available some of my writings and the research which underpins them. Because there is an enormous backlog, only some of the material is available.

My weekly Pundit is here.

My latest posts are

The Macroeconomic Implications of the Public Finance Act (April 2019)

Eyewitness on the 1966 Wool Shock

New Zealand’s Methane Cloud

Census Mess Can Be Resolved with a New One in 2021

Being a Health Economist
