What The Kākā is watching this week, and beyond
Post-cabinet news conference at 3pm today; NZ jobs and wages data set to show 7+% wages growth and 3.3% jobless rate on Weds; RBNZ's FSR on Weds too; Fed set to hike 75 bps on Thurs at 7am
TLDR: This is The Kākā’s regularly updated diary of the news and data events I’ll be watching and covering in more depth this week, and in the months ahead, as well the schedule for planned ‘When The Facts Change’ podcasts, ‘Hoon’ webinars, and ‘Ask Me Anything’ chat sessions.
It also includes my prospective speaking engagements, work travel plans out of Wellington and regular media output and appearances to give paying subscribers an idea of what I’m doing and producing as public interest journalism on housing unaffordability, climate change inaction and child poverty reduction.
I make my journalism available to paying subscribers first and in detail via email, webinars and the Substack App. Then I open it up and make it available where I can to the public on Substack’s website, through emails to non-paying email subscribers, and through my free weekly podcast for the public called When The Facts Change via The Spinoff. I also write occasionally on Interest.co.nz, which is freely available.
I’ll update and publish this diary weekly for paying subscribers, who are also welcome to suggest future events for coverage in the comments below. I often briefly update the results of these events for paying subscribers in The Kākā’s chat section of the Substack App (currently only on iOs) during the day.
For the rest of October
Mon Oct 31 - Te Pūtea Matua (RBNZ) is scheduled to release its new bank lending data for the month of Sept at 3pm. I’ll provide a short update in the chat section of the Substack App soon after 3pm.
Mon Oct 31 - PM Jacinda Ardern is scheduled to hold her weekly post-cabinet news conference at 3pm. I’ll be on the Substack App to update with details during the news conference, which I’ll attend in the Beehive. I welcome any questions in the comments below.
