If not, we got you covered! In this blog, we shall decode the not-so-heavy terminology, Asset Monetization, and how the Government is trying to raise revenue through this process.

The Finance Minister says the situation around the  New Zealand dollar remains volatile, with much of the impact stemming back to the strength of the US dollar.  The Kiwi took further hits overnight, and is near 13 year lows. Grant Robertson told Morning Report that there are factors that New Zealand can control, and some it can't. Mr Robertson says a lower dollar will mean the price of imported goods can go up and put pressure on inflation - but some of the supply chain issues, such as shipping costs, are starting to come down.

Kate Hawkesby: Grant Robertson scored an own goal complaining that he needs more security

Early Edition with Kate Hawkesby

I think Grant Robertson hit something of an own goal this week complaining that he needs more security and that politicians are under more pressure these days out on the streets. People have hurled insults at him and there was a threat of a lamington being thrown. Other MPs say they don't have these issues and they consider being out and about on the streets a key part of interacting with the community. Now for Robertson, I get that he's a recognizable and familiar face, he's more likely as Finance Minister to be held responsible for a lot of the pressures facing Kiwis right now. But former Labour Party chief of staff Mike Munro even admitted on the show yesterday that Robertson may just be being a bit sensitive here. I think if he's paving the way for a 'woe is me' approach and some sympathy come election year, it's a bad move. The most common text we received yesterday was that it's a bit rich for politicians flanked by cops to be crying foul on people yelling abuse at them, when there are dairy owners and jewellery retailers literally fearing for their lives. These people are facing down a lot worse, on a daily basis, and have been for months. I mean they've got armed offenders smashing through their front doors and not a cop to be seen. Grant had a threat of a flying lamington and got the DPS to whip him out a back way to avoid it. There's also the argument other MPs have had a lot worse thrown at them over the years, stuff that actually landed, not just threats of it. Then there's Rotorua's Tamati Coffey who says he had his car scratched. He said he had to take his name and Labour branding off it. Now being in Rotorua, a city absolutely wrecked by this Government, flooded with emergency housing, gangs and reprobates, are we surprised a Labour car gets scratched? That's probably the least of the offences taking place in Rotorua right now. And then we learn yesterday that Rotorua tourism operators are so fed up, they now want the Government to fix the mess it's created. The damage it's done to 'brand Rotorua'. Fair enough too. Robertson dismissed it yesterday saying the Government had already invested a lot of money in it, that tourism was still busy for the city, and that the Government's done a lot to support the area. Not so, argue tourism operators who say the damage is long term, and the government's been too slow in its efforts to fix it. The complaints from these operators and hospitality venues have been coming a long time. Just like the complaints from CBDs and suburban dairies and liquor stores and jewellery shops and all the malls and shopping precincts around the country being increasingly targeted these days. So it's a bit rich for government ministers to dip their toes out of their cosy beehive bubble and experience a bit of how feral it is out here in the real world at the moment, and then complain they may not be able to do walkabouts. Cafes and shops have closed, people have been run out of their businesses and livelihoods, thugs rule the roost, because we have a societal problem with lack of consequences and a fundamental lack of respect. This is the New Zealand that's been created over the past few years. The real problem is the degradation of our society, our streets, our cities, our suburbs, our schools. And to just gaslight us and say it's us who need to behave better, in order to have politicians continue to walk amongst us, is to completely miss the point.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The situation ultimately may lead to the Bank of Thailand being forced to raise interest rates higher and faster than it wants given the capital movement we are now witnessing thus supporting the acting PM's call for action. https://www.thaiexaminer.com/thai-news-foreigners/2022/09/21/acting-pm-prawit-targets-35-baht-to-dollar-rate/ Joseph O' Connor reports from Bangkok.

Irish Finance Minister Paschal Donoghue indicates continuing support for the startup sector in Ireland My coverage of Scale Ireland's headline event on September 12th began with some networking in a meeting space allocated by Avolon, one of Scale Ireland's longest supporters. I got chatting with Netsso's CEO and Founder Eoin O'Doherty. He explained how his digital product worked allowing those in the legal field to collate and organise their case files. After an interesting walk-through of Netsso's product by Eoin, we were in turn walked into the main auditorium area for the event. Irish Finance Minister speaks at Scale Ireland Martina Fitzgerald, CEO of Scale Ireland kicked off the main attraction at midday making formal introductions. She noted startups as a key element in continuing government policy around economic development. Minister Paschal Donoghue then took the stage with his keynote speech acknowledging the value and importance of the ‘startup sector'. He noted that now is a great time to be thinking about the development of our (environmental) impact and digital industries through our startup sector, which the government sees as key to our economic future. He then mentioned the new schemes for startups like the 90 million euro fund for new ventures in key areas explaining that the government seeks via the budget to maintain ‘balanced economic supports' for a sustainable future in Ireland. The minister stayed on to participate in the panel discussions chaired by Martina Fitzgerald. First up were the entrepreneurs with Jack Pierce, Co-Founder and CFO of Mayflyer, Orlaith Ryan, Co-Founder and CTO of Shorla Oncology and Matthew Coffey, Co-Founder and CEO, Squid. Wayflyer is valued at 1.6 billion euros and is a fintech success example that has 55% of its investment from the US and the balance from the rest of the world. Jack's main ask is the reduction of the administrative burden around raising money and dealing with Enterprise Ireland. His burdens around administration are understandable given he was a 3 person operation 3 years ago and has gone through a monumental growth spurt as a startup. Orlaith's deep R&D involvement with Shorla Oncology has seen her work very closely with a colleague Sharon Cunningham on the development of 3 pharma products in Ireland. Her startup has operations based in Ireland and the USA. She sees her scaling plans as going through a critical phase over the coming year given the developmental stage of her products. Orlaith after raising 10 million euros would like to see fewer administration burdens around raising cash, which would then allow her to strengthen her focus on the business and its technological development. Matthew's company ‘Squid' has done what we all wish someone would do, take our points cards from our favourite retailers and store them in one central app on our phones. Squid started in coffee shops centralising loyalty schemes. Matthew tells us, that the app will soon support points schemes with no need to carry multiple cards. He also shares the pain points shared around raising cash and would like to see government schemes have less bureaucratic process workflows. The next panel was two key investors, Will Prendergast, Partner with Frontline VC and Faye Walsh Drouillard, Founder and General Partner, WakeUp Capital. Will notes the 20% decline in US capital provision and thinks this loss in investor confidence will trickle into Europe later this year. Will finished with some good advice for entrepreneurs around not taking general advice. Startup entrepreneurs should deeply understand their own circumstances and base their spending decisions on them. He noted options are created around good timing for the individual use case, not the industry average. Faye was very focused on investment in the environment, sustainable food and healthy living. She delivered some practical advice noting the implementation of a startup plan is key to success along with confirmation it has ac...

Markets have clearly been anxious in the lead up to Jackson Hole, as investors and traders await the next policy clues out of Fed Chair Powell later this week. The declines in equities and bonds of late suggest that Powell will strike a hawkish tone to fight rampant inflation, at the expense of economic growth. If Powell's commentary forces markets to further price in more supersized Fed rate hikes, that might trigger more declines for equities and gold, while king dollar would continue to exert its dominance across the FX universe.

Oliver Peterson: Albanese seeks legal advice as new detail emerges in Scott Morrison bombshell

Governor-General David Hurley has confirmed he swore Scott Morrison into multiple ministerial roles – in some cases without the existing minister's knowledge – but has distanced himself from the decision to keep the changes a secret. In March 2020, the former Prime Minister was sworn in as a second Health Minister and second Finance Minister, with the move never made public, even to his colleagues. The Governor-General's office said in a statement to news.com.au it was acting on the advice of Mr Morrison and the decision to publicise the arrangements was a matter for “the government of the day”. This development comes shortly after Prime Minister Anthony Albanese blasted his predecessor's secrecy, and confirmed he was seeking advice on the legality of Mr Morrison's appointments. “This is extraordinary and unprecedented,” he said. “In Australia, we have a Westminster system of government that produces accountability. This is the sort of tin-pot activity that we would ridicule if it was in a non-democratic country.” Mr Albanese said he was seeking a briefing from the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. “Let's be very clear – Australians knew during the election campaign that I was running a shadow ministry. What they didn't know was that Scott Morrison was running a shadow government,'' he said. Mr Albanese said it was “extraordinary” that then-Finance Minister Mathias Cormann wasn't even told the former Prime Minister had joined him in his portfolio. “A whole lot of questions arise from this. What did Peter Dutton and other continuing members of the now shadow ministry know about these circumstances?'' he said. “We had the extraordinary revelation that Mathias Cormann, apparently, wasn't aware that Scott Morrison was the Finance Minister as well as himself. “And how is it that the Governor-General could swear-in Scott Morrison into ministerial portfolios without there being a transparency there about that process? This is quite extraordinary. “This is a government of Australia where the people of Australia were kept in the dark as to what the ministerial arrangements were. It's completely unacceptable. “This is very contrary to our Westminster system. It is unbecoming. It was cynical and it was just weird that this has occurred.” In a statement to news.com.au, a spokesperson for Governor-General David Hurley said the head of state was not doing anything out of the ordinary by appointing the minsterships to Mr Morrison. “The Governor-General, following normal process and acting on the advice of the government of the day, appointed former Prime Minister Morrison to administer portfolios other than the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. The appointments were made consistently with section 64 of the Constitution,'' the spokesperson said. “It is not uncommon for ministers to be appointed to administer departments other than their portfolio responsibility. These appointments do not require a swearing-in ceremony – the Governor-General signs an administrative instrument on the advice of the Prime Minister. “Questions around appointments of this nature are a matter for the government of the day and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. Similarly, the decision whether to publicise appointments to administer additional portfolios is a matter for the government of the day.” News.com.au revealed on Sunday the former Prime Minister swore himself in as Resources Minister and ultimately used the power to roll his own frontbencher, Keith Pitt, over a plan to drill for gas off the New South Wales coast. Mr Pitt has told colleagues he was kept in the dark and shocked to learn of the prime minister's secret powers during discussions with him and his office in late 2021 over the controversial oil and gas project. In December of 2021, Mr Morrison announced he was taking the first steps towards killing the gas project. Mr Pitt wanted to move ahead with approvals. Mr Morrison did not. It was during this process, when he was presented with a range of options, that the prime minister revealed to Mr Pitt he was secretly sworn in as the minister and could make the decision himself. Mr Pitt was so concerned that he asked for the executive order outlining how two ministers could be sworn into the portfolio, only to discover it did not exist. Coalition sources have told news.com.au Mr Pitt then complained to the deputy prime minister, Michael McCormack, but was told: “He's the prime minister”. Multiple former cabinet ministers have told news.com.au they either didn't understand why it had been done or objected to it. “The problem with Scott is he had this grandiose view of himself,” one former minister said. “And it was kind of weird.” Government sources have confirmed that ministers can be appointed under instrument when ministers are sick for short term administration without the need to tell the Governor-General but it was unusual for the prime minister to be appointed. It's now emerged former finance Minister Mathias Cormann was never informed that Mr Morrison had sworn himself into his portfolio in March 2020. Coalition sources confirmed Mr Cormann only learned of the secret arrangement through an excerpt of new book Plagued, by Simon Benson and Geoff Chambers, published in The Weekend Australian last week. News.com.au has contacted Mr Morrison, Mr Porter and Mr Cormann, who is currently serving overseas as a diplomat, for comment. Plagued recounts how Mr Morrison “hatched a radical and, until now, secret plan” with then-Attorney-General Christian Porter's approval. “Porter advised that it could be done through an administrative instrument and didn't need appointment by the Governor-General, with no constitutional barrier to having two ministers appointed to administer the same portfolio,'' the book says. “I trust you, mate,” Mr Morrison told Health Minister Greg Hunt, “but I'm swearing myself in as Health Minister, too.” The public was never told of the prime minister's secret arrangement, and the reasons for that secrecy have not been explained. Mr Morrison also swore himself in as Finance Minister alongside Mr Cormann because he wanted to ensure there were two people who had their hands on the purse strings. “Such a move was without precedent, let alone being done in secret, but the trio saw it as an elegant solution to the problem they were trying to solve – safeguarding against any one Minister having absolute power,'' Benson recounts in Plagued. “One option was to delegate the powers to cabinet, but Attorney-General Christian Porter's advice was these powers could not be delegated and could reside only with the Health Minister. “A declaration under section 475 gave Hunt as Health Minister exclusive and extraordinary powers. He, and only he, could personally make directives that overrode any other law and were not disallowable by parliament. He had authority to direct any citizen in the country to do something, or not do something, to prevent spread of the disease.” In June, BPH Energy told the stock exchange it had launched a Federal Court challenge to the gas project decision. The Australian newspaper reports today Mr Morrison was appointed by Governor-General David Hurley to take control of the entire Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources nearly a year before he scuttled an offshore gas project weeks out from the federal election. Federal Court documents reveal that the former prime minister was appointed to administer the super department on April 15, handing him powers over the Commonwealth-NSW Offshore Petroleum Joint Authority “pursuant to sections 64 and 65 of the Constitution”. - by Samantha Maiden, news.com.auSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

After starting a house painting business at the peak of the housing bubble, Jimmy Morrison drove over 35,000 miles interviewing people who predicted the crash, resulting in two documentaries. The 1st film looks at the causes of The Housing Bubble and other crises ranging from the great depression to the dot com bubble. The 2nd film starts with the bailouts in 2008 and shows The Bigger Bubble that the economy has become today. The world premiere of The Housing Bubble was at the Anthem Film Festival in 2018. Legendary investors Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, Doug Casey, and Peter Schiff star in the films alongside economists Joseph Salerno, Ron Paul, Robert Murphy, Jeff Herbener, Mark Thornton, Roger Garrison, and Patrick Barron. Financial writers Jim Grant, David Stockman, and Gene Epstein join the cast, as well as Peter Wallison, a dissenting member of Congress's Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission. Naomi Brockwell narrates the film, and NY Times bestselling author Tom Woods co-wrote the project. Jimmy entered the political world as a lobbyist in 2008, when he started Iowa Patients for Medical Marijuana. The organization is now the largest in the state with over 7,000 members and is known for lobbying the first pharmacy board in the country to support medical marijuana, which the bipartisan board passed unanimously. He was the State Director of Iowa for Gary Johnson's Republican Presidential campaign in 2012. He has lectured on economics in 6 countries, including at the Warsaw School of Economics and the University of Toronto. While in Estonia, Jimmy advised their Social Minister, Finance Minister, and Prime Minister. Jimmy has filmed 4 Grammy winners and had his work screened at the Minneapolis St. Paul Film Festival and the Anthem Film Festival. His music video "Aperture" was selected by Oscar winning director David Lynch for a grant. Let Us Disagree Productions released their first feature length film last year when Rocksteppy premiered in LA and NYC. The film features cameos with David Lynch, the dude from The Big Lebowski, and the Farrelly Brothers, who directed comedies like Dumb & Dumber and There's Something About Mary. Jimmy ran a camera unit on the film and served as Executive Producer. Source: Let Us Disagree Productions --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/john-aidan-byrne0/support
