At the end of each week, Mike Hosking takes you through the big-ticket items and lets you know what he makes of it all.

 

Job Ads: 8/10

"Yet more data this week that shows there are jobs, jobs, and more jobs."

 

Recruitment Issues: 4/10

"Oh, the irony. Work galore and yet so little take up.

This will bite us, you can't grow using no people."

 

Govt's Visa Changes: 6/10

"They're overdue and not nearly enough.

But with a government that doesn’t get it, we'll take it."

 

Global Economic Forecasts: 7/10

"The World Bank came in with yet more growth forecasts that show the planet is on the comeback path in a very, very big way.

Bring it on."

 

Ollie Robinson's Suspension from International Cricket: 2/10

"Tangible evidence that the world has lost the plot."

 

The Nurses' Strike: 6/10

"I doubt many don’t back their cause, but standby for a heap load more where this came from.

Fair Pay Agreements are where this is heading, on turbo charge."

 

Greg Murphy's Bathurst Comeback: 8/10

"Proof you're never too old, class is permanent, and dreams live forever."

 

Elliot Johnstone Signing with the New York Mets: 8/10

"A New Zealander potentially playing Major League Baseball.

How good?"

 

Newstalk ZB: 8/10

Station of the Year.

And dare I suggest, ever so humbly, very well deserved."
