Leonard Hong

I’m an experienced economic policy professional based in Wellington. In 2019, I graduated with a BCom/BA Conjoint Degree at the University of Auckland, majored in Economics, International Business, Politics & International Relations, and History. I was also a junior policy analyst at the New Zealand Initiative from 2020 to 2022.

As a passionate individual for political science and economics, I always strive for greater knowledge and intellect. My main interests lie in the topics of globalisation, macroeconomics, international political economy and great power politics. I enjoy reading and digesting non-fiction books in my field of interest and aspire to emulate my intellectual heroes.

“Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.” — John Maynard Keynes
