Topic of Address:
The Wellbeing Approach - has it lived up to its promise?

Arthur Grimes is a Professor at the School of Government, Wellington School of Business and Government, and inaugural holder of the Chair of Wellbeing and Public Policy. He is also a Senior Fellow at Motu Economic and Public Policy Research in Wellington. He is ideally placed to give IPANZ members an account and critique of the New Zealand approach to improving wellbeing. He will outline applications of wellbeing frameworks in other parts of the world, thereby demonstrating potential enhancements to be considered here. Has the wellbeing approach lived up to its promise? If not, what are the most compelling ways to improve budgeting and policy formulation processes to enhance wellbeing?
