Nedbank reports strong earnings growth, lifts interim dividend

Remove impediments to the spirit of enterprise to achieve economic growth

South Africa’s economy is in a mess, to say the very least, and all this is solely and exclusively the fault of policymakers. Everything has gone horribly wrong! Yet it is not all beyond redemption.

Reserve Bank’s inflation of money supply makes us poorer and is...

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB), historically finding its expression in the Currency and Banking Act of 1920, is today premised on section 224(1) of the Constitution.

A first half to forget

June was a brutal month for global equities, capping the worst first half of a year since the launch of the MSCI All Country World Index in 1987. For indices with longer track records, the story is worse. In the case of the US S&P500, the first half performance has not been this bad since 1962.

Making sense of investment cycles

Equity markets have been under considerable selling pressure in 2022, as investors anticipate that stubbornly high inflation will cause central banks to raise short-term interest rates multiple times this year. At the same time, expectations for global economic growth have been revised downwards, following further disruptions to global supply chains on the back of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s strict COVID-19 lockdown measures.

Accelerating black ownership of the economy

With the right investments by state finance institutions supported by private investors, SA could achieve more meaningful and scalable impact. In a recent interview I was asked what my view is on economic transformation within the context of empowerment financing or investment in Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) transactions and companies.

Lack of accountability and consequence management plagues local government

The 2019-20 local government general report released by the Auditor General of South Africa (AGSA) on 15 June continues to emphasise the lack of accountability and consequence management in local government which impacts service delivery and municipal finance management.

Soaring inflation leaves SA employers with tough choices

South African businesses that have already planned their pay increases for 2022 have some tough decisions ahead of them. This is due to rocketing inflation, fuelled by global economic turbulence and local conditions, which is only expected to worsen over the rest of the year.
