Tea with Tony | Episode 19 | November 2022


It feels like the economy has gone from being in a mild storm state to a cyclone pending – with precursor wind gusts that continue to hurt Kiwis from the petrol pump to the grocery aisle. This month in Tea with Tony, we ask if it’s too late to batten down the hatches and discuss the inflation interest rate equation, the housing market, and the not-so-mysterious case of missing Kiwis and why that even matters.

Tune in to get Tony’s view.
