Business gets in touch with softer side as Finance Minister presents ‘wellbeing’ Budget

Business gets in touch with softer side as Finance Minister presents ‘wellbeing’ Budget

Review: Today Andrea Fox reports in the NZ Herald about a presentation by Grant Robinson to business people in the Waikato about next year’s wellbeing budget. Robertson described the four capital stocks, and introduced the concept of loneliness. For human capital, he said: “Human capital…how are our people, how educated are they, how healthy are they, how secure do we feel as individuals? Are people more lonely in society than they used to be?”

For social capital, he said: “Then social capital – how connected are our communities? How strong are they? Across these four dimensions we will get a much better picture of our success as a country.”
