After living through Zimbabwe’s “Lost Decade” and losing my shirt more than a few times to the vagaries of the market, I’ve developed an economic viewpoint somewhat different from what they taught us at University of Cape Town.
Over time I have found that the simplest solution is often the one that yields the most desirable result, however, corporates & the state are adept at making this as difficult as possible. This blog is an attempt to cut through the doublespeak that makes up much of daily business and state media coverage to create an alternative view biased towards local people-driven solutions. With the occasional satirical post to break the monotony.
I travel regularly between South Africa and Zimbabwe occasionally visiting Botswana.
