Money, Power, Respect: The Importance of Financial Education

The month of April is synonymous with many things — spring, taxes, April showers — but what it should perhaps be most associated with is financial empowerment. In 2004, the Senate did precisely that when it officially recognized April as National Financial Literacy Month. This is of particular importance for the Black community. When 21 percent of Black households are unbanked and 34 percent are under-banked, we can no longer ignore the immediate need for financial awareness and enfranchisement. Last week, National Action Network (NAN) held its 25th annual convention…

Did they lead by presenting a plan and using their authority to insist that others follow along? Or did the person instead lead by explaining why a particular course of action seemed like the best one, allowing others to willfully get on board? These two leadership styles, which I and other researchers refer to as dominance and prestige, respectively, reflect two fundamental strategies people use to navigate their…

Budget Speech 2017 – Pravin Gordhan

CAPE TOWN – Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan will deliver his annual Budget speech in Parliament on Wednesday evening. But for Gordhan and his team it will be a tough budget to deliver against the backdrop of a rumoured cabinet reshuffle – with him  and his deputy, Mcebisi Jonas’s heads said to be on the chopping block. The rand extended its losses against the dollar on Tuesday ahead of Gordhan’s annual speech. The nomination of former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe to Parliament added to speculation of an imminent reshuffle‚ sending the…

Bank of Hope Africa – Guptas enlist top UK spin doctors

THE Gupta family has brought in heavy firepower in an apparent effort to burnish its image. The controversial business family has enlisted the services of a London-based lobbying and public relations firm, whose executives once claimed they were capable of drowning out negative coverage and influencing public opinion through unorthodox means. Bell Pottinger — formed by British public relations guru Timothy Bell — this week confirmed it had the Guptas’ Oakbay Investments as a client.

Bank of Hope Africa – Zuma defiant as fallout from Jonas exposé rages

AS A political storm raged on Thursday over the Gupta family’s influence over Cabinet appointments, President Jacob Zuma remained defiant. His flat refusal to address the bombshell by Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas that the Guptas had offered him the job of finance minister, indicated a lack of contrition ahead of a crucial national executive committee (NEC) meeting this weekend. Business leaders called on the African National Congress (ANC) to “act quickly and decisively to restore confidence in the office of the president; to protect SA’s constitutional democracy; and to…
