Q+A Sunday 5 May: Peter Dunne, Bitcoin, Women in Work

Q+A
SUNDAY 5TH MAY, 9AM, TV ONE


On Q+A this Sunday, we speak to Peter Dunne. United Future is a one-MP party in coalition with National but does he wield too much power in Parliament? We talk to him about crucial votes and the IRD software upgrade.

Also on the programme, ever heard of a Bitcoin? It’s the digital payments system that some are using as an alternative currency. Banks and governments don’t like Bitcoin but is it cause for concern or the next big thing?
And we hear from top U.S. executive, Beth Brooke, about why men get ahead and why women fall behind in the workplace.

On the panel this week, Auckland University political scientist Dr Raymond Miller, former Labour party candidate Josie Pagani, and Business NZ CEO Phil O’Reilly.

Join host Susan Wood and deputy political editor Jessica Mutch on Q+A at 9am this Sunday on TV One.

Except that at IRD, not even your shoes will be left behind. More>>
