Very eloquent interview, Jenée and very timely to put housing into the focus.

The only NZ-related events to attract any significant attention and interest in the United States and Japan are the Christchurch mosque massacre and the crushing landslide victory of Ardern’s Labour party. The latter is seen by many as a very bad omen for Trump and the GOP, since it’s generally perceived here that Ardern was re-elected largely on the strength of her handling of the pandemic, whereas even Trump’s most diehard fangirlies realize he screwed that up royally.

Excellent discussion Jenee. NZ housing is our country's number one issue and your friends should stop being sick of you talking about it.
I wonder if an entertainment-style documentary is what is needed to lift the lid to a wider audience on the dark reality that current rising house prices is to present and future NZ.

I nice wee interview/chat here with Jenée Tibshraeny and Sharesies. A great NZ company, interviewed by Jenée, who HAS credible monetary, fiscal and market world-views.

Whether she's heard of the Cantillon Effect or not, I cannot say - but she gets it. She puts Grant Robertson and Paul Goldsmith to shame.

No discussion of deposit holder guarantee.
So savers are getting zero return for maximum risk.
One of Adrian's blunt tools is the OBR if he needs it to refloat a bank from this artificial financial world he has created.
I think the low interest rates are needed to keep be in jobs is BS.
Adrian and Robberson should have just handed out stimulus cheques to everyone so that way every level of society benefits not just the debt fueled.
