Making ‘cents’: The economy and 2024.

We all want to understand what’s happening with our money!

After a successful first episode, Satish Ranchhod, Senior Economist from Westpac NZ is back! This time he’s here to help you make ‘cents’ of the economy as we move through the busy festive season and into a new year.

This quick and insightful conversation with Retail NZ CE, Carolyn Young, looks at the economic landscape, providing invaluable guidance to help you navigate the ever-evolving retail environment.

Satish answers some key questions including:

  • what’s happening with inflation and business costs?
  • how are interest rates looking going into 2024?
  • how will population growth and migration affect the retail sector?
  • what are some insights for retailers coming into Christmas? And more.
