Economist William Phillips, who taught here from 1969 to 1975, observed a historical inverse relationship between countries' unemployment and inflation rates, a phenomenon now known as the Phillips Curve. Today, 39,000 students are part of New Zealand's largest university community, set up in 1883, with eight faculties on six campuses. Ex-prime ministers David Lange and Helen Clark studied here.
