I was delighted recently to have the chance to sit down and chat with Shamubeel Eaqub. Shamubeel is the Principal Economist with the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research and as such is a respected economist and often quoted and interviewed personality.
I was keen to have the opportunity for Shamubeel to bring some insight into the broad economic outlook for the next 12 months with naturally a focus to the property market.
As someone who has by his own admission been a serious pessimist over the economy over the past 3 years, Shamubeel reveals in the interview a sense that we are beginning to see the early signs of a brighter future – by no means a buoyant one, but an outlook that holds stronger economic growth than we have seen lately.
The interview is extensive and at just over 30 minutes (we cover a lot of detail) we split the video in two parts.
