Guarding the Public Purse looks at the fiscal policy challenges facing New Zealand. It reviews Treasury's 2013 fiscal projections to 2060 and its policy options for responding to the pressures arising from New Zealand's ageing population. The report analyses ways in which public finances can be made more sustainable through greater productivity growth, competition and stronger fiscal rules and institutions. In particular, it recommends establishing an independent fiscal council.

No School is an Island: Fostering Collaboration in a Competitive System is the story of ‘Learning and Change Networks’ (LCN), a model of school collaboration that the government’s ‘Investing in Educational Success’ (IES) policy must learn from. The Initiative profiles the key features of LCN that enable schools to work together, and provides thinking on how to improve the IES policy to ensure the investment is worthwhile.
