    Can markets front-run the govt on climate?

Makes me look forward to my commute to work

Also guilty of making me laugh out loud on the bus to jokes about the NZ mortgage market, macro economic policy etc…

Tim.m.H ,

Amusing and informative in almost equal portions

Ep 43 is absolutely stellar. Great conversation about the climate crisis, geopolitics, famine and Clare Valley lunching. Love your work.
