Konrad is passionate about economic thought and history. Where we've come from and the decisions that have been made before us have shaped the world into what it is. How we respond, with present ideas, is the challenge.
There is always a story to tell, the task for economists is finding the right data to describe the timeline, and structuring what we know in a way that yields insight. Konrad specialises in econometric modelling and has developed an expertise in using Statistics New Zealand's Intergrated Data Infrastructure and Longitudinal Business Database.
His work is included in all three of BERL's kete: people, Te Ōhanga Māori, and development. To these he brings skills of analysis, storytelling, and translating stodgy boring models into useful insights for clients.
