  • On Tuesday, the World Bank announced it cut South Africa's economic growth forecast to 0.8% in 2016. Followed by the words, “The economy is flirting with stagnation if not recession”.

  • The pioneer of investing reveals his most valuable secret: The best bargains could only be found "at the point of maximum pessimism"
  • In September 1939, one of the greatest investors of all time, Sir John Templeton made a legendary investment move. Sir John Templeton borrowed $10,000 to buy shares in every company trading on the NYSE for under $1. A few years later his investment paid off. He made a good profit after paying off his debts. Amazingly only 4 out of 100 turned out to be worthless. From this ‘experiment', Templeton refined his own investing approach, which never failed to deliver outstanding profits. In fact, he was so successful that every $10,000 invested with him in 1954 was worth more than $2 million in 1992, when he sold the Templeton Growth Fund. So what does this have to do with you? Well, many investors are pessimistic about the JSE and so stocks have fallen drastically. That's why now's the perfect time to use Sir John Templeton investment strategy to pick the best bargains.... ››› Read more

  • Not even government can hide the political and economic ditch they're digging for themselves
  • In previous essays, I've shown how most South African state-owned institutions are crumbling… The SABC management and finances are in constant disarray, so is Eskom, Sanral, SAA, the postal service and the education system… Just look at this quote from Robert McNamara, ex-president of the World Bank, during visit to South Africa in 1982. "I have seen very few countries in the world that have such inadequate educational conditions. I was shocked at what I saw in some of the rural areas and homelands. Education is of fundamental importance. There is no social, political, or economic problem you can solve without adequate education." Isn't this still relevant today?... ››› Read more
