Introduction and Reflection Economic history sits in an uneasy position in the academy. It is, of course, a discipline in its own right but it is also an adjunct to economics as a source of the testing and generating theories.
Submitted by admin on April 22, - Exports fell by 45 per cent in two years, national income by 40 per cent in three. The balance of payments was further weakened by the burden of interest on the overseas debt. At the worst point of the depression, the number of unemployed may have exceeded 70, — ambiguities of definition make a precise estimate difficult.

THE IMPACT OF NEW ZEALAND'S EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS ACT ON INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS RAYMOND HARBRIDGE* AND AARON CRAWFORD** INTRODUCTION Wage determination matters in New Zealand have long been a source.
The sharpest price fall was that of wool, which declined by 60 per cent from to ; meat fell a good deal less.
The dairy price index continued to fall until ; dairy farmers tried to make ends meet by increasing production during the depression and in doing so forced the export prices of butter and cheese still lower: The depression has rightly been described as a traumatic experience; for the second time at least since the founding of the colony, new New Zealanders found themselves disillusioned by the appearance in their adopted country of conditions they thought they had escaped from.
As in the late s, there was some net emigration in the early s; as on the earlier occasion, again, most of the would-be emigrants could not afford the fare to leave. Perhaps as well; for this time, at least, they were not justified in thinking they had made the worst of the bargain.
Bad as were conditions in New Zealand, they were perhaps less demoralising than those in Jarrow or on Clydeside, and percentages of the labour force unemployed were a good deal higher in many industrial countries, and in Australia.
The depression was, in fact, aggravated by New Zealand's extreme unpreparedness to meet it. The policy of the Coalition Government formed in September was on the whole unenterprising and, perhaps inevitably, unenlightened in the Keynesian sense of the word.
As elsewhere, the chief concern was to balance the budget, though overseas borrowing continued until Some of the public works which formed the main relief measure were, however, useful.
Especially notable were the schemes for the development of Maori land conceived before the depression but speeded up essentially as relief workwhich accorded well with the marked resurgence of the Maori people since the late nineteenth century, and the planting of exotic trees in the centre of the North Island, which was to lead to a thriving development of forest products.
Most of the positive measures were conceived to help the farm community whose net income, according to one expert calculation, was zero in —31 and a negative quantity in — From the Government adopted a scheme first tried privately on the initiative of the Canterbury Chamber of Commerce, whereby mortgage commitments were scaled down by agreement between the farmer and his mortgagee.
The year before, the Imperial Conference at Ottawa had set up the structure of Imperial preference which has since remained the basis of New Zealand's trade with the United Kingdom, though the importance of the concessions, particularly as regards New Zealand exports to Britain, has been somewhat eroded with the passage of time.
However, a British proposal to impose quota restrictions on butter imports and an unsuccessful experiment in placing such quotas on meat, shocked New Zealand opinion into its first acquaintance with an idea which has since become only too familiar — that the British market is not a bottomless pit into which anything New Zealand can produce may be profitably poured.
Belief that Coates, Minister of Finance in the Coalition Government, had aided and abetted the British government's plan for a butter quota, was one reason for the loss of confidence in the Administration on the part of the dairy farmers, and their readiness to vote for a Labour Party which promised a guaranteed price for their products.
