The Hard Stuff With Nigel Latta - Selling Ourselves Short

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2016

This episode of The Hard Stuff discusses the very popular and sometimes confronting topic: our economy. From exports to entertainment, milk to meat, what would we find if we really followed the money? Presenter Nigel Latta chats with dairy farmers, tech company managers, business owners (big and small) and economists to try and identify the financial shortcomings that burden New Zealand — a country which once provided a quality of life that was envied around the globe. Now, as Nigel's investigating reveals, Aotearoa seems to be missing a few key ingredients we need to make the dough.

You can sell the same thing over and over again. With some of our traditional industries, we have that limitation. You can only sell each apple one time...but we can make a game and have that downloaded, or sold, millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions of times.
– Mario Wynands, Managing Director of video game company PikPok, discusses the differences between tech companies and traditional industries
