Every Tuesday after the 10pm news, Mitch Harris is joined by Elevation Capital CEO and founder Christopher Swasbrook to talk on the latest in business.

On the agenda tonight:
- Fletcher Building has said they won't be making any money while constructing the Puhoi-Warkworth extension of Auckland's Northern Motorway, which will take 7-8 years to complete. Why not? What has gone so wrong for the company?
- The government may have to pay up to $1billion to Christchurch residents after Patrick Gower's report on Newshub tonight looking at quake-damaged houses in Christchurch being sold on. How could these houses be re-sold 'in good faith'?
- With online shopping becoming so popular, is there a future for retail stores? What can retailers offer to consumers to keep them coming back into the store?
- Facebook continues to try and rebuild their image after the recent negative headlines regarding Cambridge Analytica, and the social media platform losing over $70billion in value since the scandal broke.
- Debt around the world has reached a record high - it's now at $164 trillion. This is 40% higher than in 2007 (and 40% of this debt comes from China).
- The United States wants back into the TPPA. What could this potentially mean for Pharmac?
