BERL Publications

Birds Eye View


Birds Eye View incorporates our flagship publication, BERL Forecasts, which have been issued quarterly since 1957.. It has the same in-depth, quality articles, but in a format more aligned to the digital age we operate in. 

Birds Eye View is divided into five key sections, and includes our forecast data tables. These sections focus on  


  • Employment and migration,
  • Money and credit
  • Exchange rate, and
  • Investment and building activity.


Commentary also discusses the economic situation in New Zealand and abroad, including exports, inflation, retail trade, and the government accounts. 

The BERL Birds Eye View will be published quarterly (March, June, September and December) and distributed in electronic form and will be available to subscribers only.

A single issue of Birds Eye View can be purchased for $300 + GST, or an annual subscription (4 issues) is $1,000 + GST.

This publication screen doesn’t cover both publications ie BEV and Monthly Monitor.  They are both highlighted in separate tabs which make it confusing I think.  The publications tab should have info re both BEV & MM and the Register tab should have the option as to what one they wish to register for ie tick the box or something.  It doesn’t flow properly.
