Productivity Commission reverses brain drain (one Kiwi at a time)


The Productivity Commission is pleased to welcome Patrick Nolan on board as a Principal Advisor to the Economics and Research team.

Patrick has returned to New Zealand from London, having most recently been the chief economist at Reform, a British think tank focused on public policy and economic prosperity. Before moving abroad in 2009, he worked for the New Zealand Treasury and as an economic advisor to a front-bench minister in the Labour government.
Patrick will be closely involved in running the Productivity Hub and contributing to our work in partnership with Motu, as well as contributing to ongoing research and inquiry work.
