In this episode, Matthew discusses his new report with Oliver which is about road pricing in New Zealand.

They explore the history of road pricing, international examples, and potential benefits such as reducing congestion and improving infrastructure planning.

Their conversation emphasises that while the economic case for road pricing is clear, the key challenge lies in effectively communicating its benefits to the public and gaining their support for implementation.
