Abstract

Commentators have suggested over the years, and still do, that the NZ economy should restructure more rapidly towards sophisticated manufacturing and services so as to avoid remaining an agricultural economy. This paper reviews some relevant theory and empirical analyses, in a search for evidence that agricultural economies grow more slowly than others and for approaches that may be helpful for further research. The evidence is mixed, but appears not to strongly support the hypothesis that NZ would grow faster through a lesser focus on agriculture.
