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.

Stuart Nash's Tourism Plan: 8/10

"I know he's on the programme every Wednesday.

“But I like the directness, I like the plan, so let's get on with the delivery."

Reaction to All Blacks' Loss: 2/10

"We honestly have to get a grip.

“Nothing wrong with disappointment, nothing wrong with expectation of success.

“But being able to deal with both is a skill, and a part of life, but, man, have we made dicks of ourselves this week."

Sam Cane: 6/10

"I like people who speak their mind.

"It's unusual for an All Black captain to take the bait, but the bait this week has been particularly lame and needlessly aggressive."

Moderna's Vaccine News: 6/10

"Part of the brilliance that is science.

“And science will save us all."

The Tech Sector: 9/10

"Results this week show it's grown yet again.

“And here's the issue too much under the radar, this is a boom area. This is a $12 billion industry we have not woken up to enough." 

Housing Market: 8/10

"Another stonking week of prices, sales, headlines, records, panic, consternation, finger pointing, blame, and questions.

“God, it's awesome to watch."

RCEP Trade Deal: 6/10

"Because all free trade deals are good.

“But this got over-hyped given we already have deals with the people involved, deals on deals don’t automatically make better deals.

“What we wanted was India and they're not playing."

Happiness: 7/10

"Wellbeing numbers show we are happy, but not as happy as we could be.

“That’s up to us. You want to be happy? You will. You want to succeed? You will? If you tell yourself you will, you will.

“Message for life, grasshopper."
