House prices. "Sit! Murmph, gack..." 5 November, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000405

There are two frames; in the first is an enormous dog wearing a collar with the words 'House prices' on it. Timidly exhorting the dog to sit is the Governor of the Reserve Bank, Alan Bollard. In the second frame the dog, looking mean, sits suddenly, flattening Alan Bollard, whose legs can be seen poking out from beneath the dog. Refers to continuing high house prices and the desire of the Reserve Bank that New Zealanders cut their spending back.
