If you’re over 65, New Zealand is a good place to be but it’s a different story if you’re under 25, RNZ reveals. On average, younger Kiwis are more lonely and less wealthy than their elders were, says Dominick Stephens, Chief Economic Adviser to the NZ Treasury. Stephens hopes the revelations in Treasury’s upcoming report on wellbeing trends in the NZ population will serve as a wake-up call to policy-makers. A growing gap between the well-being of older and younger New Zealanders is disturbing to see, and wealth disparity could be the cause.
