Tony Alexander Economist
Economics Speaker & Writer
I have been working as an economist in New Zealand since returning from Sydney in 1987 – initially with Westpac, then a share broking firm, then 26 years with BNZ of which almost 25 years was as Chief Economist. My focus has always been on translating developments and trends in the economics sphere into a language which people can understand. Hence the tagline at the top of all of my publications.
My aim: “To help Kiwis make better decisions for their businesses, investments, home purchases, and people by writing about the economy in an easy to understand manner.”
