The Government's focus on wellbeing for the 2019 Budget promises a broader focus for public policy. There is however a risk that wellbeing as defined by such things as Treasury's Living Standards framework and Statistics NZ's Indicators Aotearoa becomes so complex and vague that it fails to ignite public support for the idea. There is a risk too that the Government is less than precise about what it means by wellbeing so that the concept comes to mean everything and nothing.
