‘Making Intergenerational Wellbeing Real: the Treasury’s Living Standards Monitor

 Registration is closed for this event

Earlier this year, wellbeing expert Conal Smith of Kotata Insight was commissioned by the Treasury to develop a proposed Living Standards Dashboard to support the application of the Living Standards Framework (LSF) to policy issues.  In this seminar, Conal will take us through the conceptual framework underpinning the LSF, the proposed set of dashboard indicators, and his insights around the practicalities of implementing the LSF.

Conal Smith is a Wellington-based economist with interests spanning the economics of well-being, valuing intangible costs and benefits, social capital and trust, the behavioural drivers of economic outcomes, and social policy more generally.  He led the development of the first international guidelines on the measurement of subjective wellbeing (2013) and trust (2017) as well as the OECD's first well-being themed country report. Conal has worked on the policy applications of well-being measures in New Zealand, the OECD, and the developing world. In 2014 he co-taught the first formal course in wellbeing economics at Sciences Po in Paris.  Conal has worked as a senior economist at the OECD and in managerial and senior policy roles in a range of different New Zealand government agencies.
