(1:14)We review the week on the markets with NBR Editor Duncan Bridgeman. (7:23)NBR’s Grant Walker speaks to Waikato University Professor Iain White. They discuss the ability of NZ’s infrastructure to cope with increasingly damaging storms being blamed on Climate Change and the fact that much of NZ’s infrastructure was designed to cope with weather events of a passing era. (16:46)Andrew's feature guests this week are Dr Michelle Dickinson and David Downs. They speak about their new book No 8 Recharged which examines some of New Zealand’s more recent innovation success stories. It argues that our long held love of the No 8 wire mentality is no longer relevant and in fact damaging to New Zealand. But as a country are we really as innovative as we like to think?
