I’m an idiot

I was looking at per-capita GDP today. Turns out I hadn’t realised how bad it’s been. I mean, I knew things had been moving a bit sideways and that the recovery, such as it has been, hasn’t been flash. But I hadn’t realised the full extent. So, from Stats NZ:
Real gross national disposable income per capita ($ 1995/1996 prices) SG09RAC00B06NZ
2008 — 32,247
2013 — 32,869
That’s growth of 1.9% in five years.
No wonder we’re grumpy.
