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, although I am adding most weeks.

A summary of  the research and writing I did in 2012 is at  http://www.eastonbh.ac.nz/?p=1775.

An account of my writings of the Global Financial Crisis up to December 2012 is at http://www.eastonbh.ac.nz/?p=1785.

An index of my writings on the Canterbury Earthquakes is at
