About Keith Rankin

Keith RankinAbout Keith Rankin – Keith Rankin has taught economics at Unitec in Mt Albert since 1999. An economic historian by training, his research has included an analysis of labour supply in the Great Depression of the 1930s, and has included estimates of New Zealand’s GNP going back to the 1850s.

Keith believes that many of the economic issues that beguile us cannot be understood by relying on the orthodox interpretations of our social science disciplines. Keith favours a critical approach that emphasises new perspectives rather than simply opposing those practices and policies that we don’t like.

Keith lives with his family in Avondale, Auckland.

    I was sent a link https://thedailyblog.co.nz/2017/09/19/why-jacinda-needs-to-lose-this-election to your blog by a very good friend of mine. He suggested also that I read ypur piece “New Zealand Cyclical Growth Calculations” but I have not been able to find it, maybe you could help me.
    I agree with you 100% when you say “I believe that there will be a financial crisis next year (see my recent ’New Zealand’s Cyclical Growth Contractions’, 12 Sep 2017)” I would like to see your article.
    Kind regards

    It looks as though my first one didn’t arrive, maybe it was too long. Is there a word/character limit?
