NZ climate policy shambles, and other summer reading - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Dec 17, 2012

It’s summer down south, and New Zealand’s politicians have embarked on their summer break.

Supply or demand – why not both? - The Dismal Science

Matt Nolan Nov 05, 2012

I’m a little perplexed to see Gareth Morgan come out railing against the Productivity Commission’s report on the housing market.  Now when it was released, I thought the focus and justification were a bit funky – but that the analysis seemed largely sound.

I find most of Morgan’s books a little superficial for my tastes and Health Cheque is certainly no exception, lacking, as it does, any deep [...] Related posts: … Read More

Climate debate by TV text poll – no contest - Griffin's Gadgets

Peter Griffin Dec 09, 2009

TVNZ’s Close Up show last night reverted to the reliable old Wishart vs Morgan set-up to frame a piece about Copenhagen and whether humans are contributing to climate change. You may recall a similar match-up on climate sceptic Leighton Smith’s Newstalk ZB show around the time Morgan launched his book Poles Apart. Only this one … Read More
