  • Former US Federal Reserve Chairman reveals the cure to the next global economic crisis
    Remember Alan Greenspan? He was the former US Federal Reserve Chairman from 1986 to 2006. A corrupt, but smart man, who was responsible for pumping endless supply of dollars to “stimulate” the US economy to no avail. Well, in a recent interview after the Brexit referendum he had this to say: “This is the worst period, I recall since I've been in public service. There's nothing like i... ››› more

In fact, since the resource index's January low, it's up 40% for the year so far! But that doesn't mean you can just up and ... ››› more

  • The JSE just made a R100 billion error
    Until Sunday 24 July 2016, economists, local and international investors were investing under a false notion that foreign investors bought South African equities to the value of nearly R100 billion. Economists were mostly baffled by the figures being reported by the JSE. They could not understand why so many investors were buying up such a large portion of South African listed companies. Some ... ››› more

  • Invest R1,200 a year and collect a 25% bonus for your children's education
    Earlier this week I spoke to a new parent who only earns R8,000 a month. With a three month old baby, she was concerned that she wouldn't have enough money for her child's education when the time came to send the child to school. She could only afford to save R1,200 a year for her child's education and put her first lump sum savings into a 32 day savings account that gave her a measly 5% inter... ››› more
