  • So far this year, you've heard the word recession a lot. It's a real threat to the economy right now.

  • The impact of irresponsible rumours on the South African economy
  • This morning, the rand is trading at R15.51 to the dollar. In 11 days it's lost 54 cents against the greenback. This is only the beginning of the rand's fall.
