NZ Institute - No country is an island

Interesting post here about raising nz's productivity from woeful to average and how that might help us arrest the slide to the bottom of the OECD (and stop the 25%+ wage differential with Australia from harvesting every other graduate we churn out over the next 10 years).
NZ doesn't have many think tanks that are apolitical, most of them are of the of the shrill-agenda-promotion variety but so far i've found the nz institute reports to be very well balanced, presenting the facts and opinon and leaving the policy making to those that are supposed to make it. I haven't heard anything about their reports being received well or not but i suspect that they are discussed, it's hard to argue methodology/conclusion when it's this well written.
