    That’s terrific – three of the most over-exposed and over-rated commentators in New Zealand today. I should definitely attend, not.

    BHickey, owner of the “40% drop in the value of homes across New Zealand” statement.

    The man has as much credibility as Carter of Kabul. As an economic commentator, my Nana has more grasp on reality.

    My next thought was “OK, who are the panelists on the right?” It looks like VUW chose the panelists.
