Matt Nolan is a senior economist at Infometrics. He focuses primarily on the outlook for the private sector, by attempting to understand changes and movement in household and business behaviour. In order to do this he uses a range of empirical models, while keeping a keen eye on current events. He enjoys trying to explain the sometimes wonkish views of economists in a way that people can understand. Matt joined Infometrics in early 2007, and has an MCA in Economics from Victoria University of Wellington.
