Achieving New Zealand's productivity potential outlines reasons why New Zealand has generally struggled to lift productivity over the last four decades and the broad areas of policy reform that would help in turning that around. It draws on recent research on New Zealand’s productivity and aims to give a more comprehensive and policy-relevant account than has been possible previously.

This paper presents a detailed analysis of the issues while a shorter and more accessible version is available in the Overview.
