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

On the table tonight:
- Kiwi billionaire Christopher Chandler has denied spy claims, and has said he's not a 'money man' for Donald Trump or Vladimir Putin. Who exactly is Christopher Chandler?
- A piece in the Financial Times in America claims Paul Jacobs is attempting to pull off the biggest buyout in history. The former Qualcomm founder is looking for a backer (or backers) to raise $100billion US to buy Dutch computer chip company NXP.
- How would this buyout affect Qualcomm? Could they handle debt of over $100billion US?
- Mitch and Chris finish tonight's chat by looking at the Budget 2018, which is this Thursday afternoon. What areas could really use a financial boost? Will the debt level increase, and by how much?

Night Talk with Mitch Harris, 8pm - 12am Monday-Thursday nights on RadioLIVE, and streaming live to the rova app on Android and iPhone.
