TONIGHT @ 7PM: Simon Bridges & Selwyn Manning
Last nights predictions with Matthew Hooton and Gareth Hughes
Prediction 1 – ipredict is predicting the Green party will have 10.3% of the party vote. will the Greens finally get the respect they deserve, or will the wimp out curse that has cut their vote each and every election see them falter on election day?
Prediction 2 - ipredict is saying there is a 14% probability that there will be a green minister in the next government - the market has factored a green-blue possibility, has anyone told the Greens?
Prediction 3 - ipredict is saying Treasury, the Reserve Bank and Bill English are wrong on unemployment. Treasury says 5.8% unemployment for the March 2012 quarter, the Reserve Bank says 5.7%. With a bit of complex mathematics from the iPredict team at Victoria Universiy, iPredict’s 5200 traders say March unemployment will be as high as 6.2%. What does that mean for National’s new welfare policy, and what does it mean for next year’s tax take?
