4:06 Christchurch city councillor, Ali Jones with Porirua GP Sapna Samant are on The Panel today. The regional mayors calling for regional development lest the hinterland founder; our tourism people calling for NZers to be tourists, especially in our national parks lest we lose those parks. And chats about money. First of all the counterfeit variety floating around Auckland today, what we spend money on in our households now compared with our spending in the past - in other words what costs more and less. The huge amount of it it took to buy the Hotchin house in Auckland; could we even have imagined a house on a section being worth 30 or 40 million dollars ten years ago? The fact that more and more people are short of dosh, but Boris Johnson the mayor of London says that's the order of things, a lot of people are just not intelligent. And the women making money in NZ - where are they?
