Recommended Reading - The Kaka by Bernard Hickey
At Moneyworks, we read, listen to and watch a wide range of information and news sources, ranging from the mainstream media (NZ Herald, Stuff, New York Times, Fox News) to more specific media and newsletters (Newsroom, Business Desk, Fortune, Time Magazine, Good Returns, Investment News).
It is increasingly becoming a defined skill to break through the noise, hype, rhetoric and bias of commentators and news outlets. One of our core 'go to' sources of information is the relatively new publication from the well known commentator Bernard Hickey. Bernard has been developing his offering over the last year, and we are finding that the newsletter provides a calm, clear eyed and 'sober' analysis of the world, as well as highlighting us to stories we should read.
As well as the daily 'Dawn Chorus', Bernard provides overviews to subscribers in podcast format, and provides more indepth analysis and deep dives into issues that he feels are particularly relevant during the day.
The Kaka provides an overview for non subscribers on a daily basis, with the detail reserved for subscribers.
Bernard Hickey’s writing is supported by thousands of individual subscribers to The Kākā, which is his subscription email newsletter and podcast. You can support his writing in public for the public by subscribing, as we do. Here’s a special offer to readers of this Moneyworks email of 50% off for the first year $95 instead of $190. The Kākā also has a special “$30 for under 30s” offer for all those aged under 30. It’s free for students.
