ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study that assessed the role of New Zealand universities in aiding public understanding of events like the global financial crisis (GFC). Using academics from New Zealand universities and non-academics like bank economists, consultants and media people, interviews on involvement and motivations of academics in public understanding of the GFC were held. Expert commentary on effects of the GFC in New Zealand has been dominated by bank economists and consultants, and academics have often been absent in public discussions of the GFC.
