I have included two crucial interviews carried out by Kathryn Ryan from Radio New Zealand made over the last two days.
The first is an interview with Mark Binns, infrastructure CEO of Fletcher Building Ltd [FBU.NZX] where he talks about his company's role in rebuilding Christchurch and the obvious benefits that will bring to the company over the next 3-5 years.
The second interview is with Allan Bollard, Reserve Bank Governor, and his rationale for increasing the OCR today by 50 basis points to 2.5%.
The last interview is especially interesting given that Bollard made a preemptive rate cut today rather than the typical reactive moves that he usually makes, so it is clear that he sees the economy getting worse over 2011, partly due to the Christchurch Earthquake and that things will not pick up until 2012 when we will see increasing economic activity surrounding , ironically, around the rebuilding of Christchurch.
Fletcher Building will be one of the largest benefactors of this rebuilding so it makes the interview compelling listening to those investors thinking of buying FBU shares.
