Buying the Bike…to Watch the Race

You probably went through all the motions of Economics class yourself. Those fleetingly lucid moments of clear understanding, followed by the many more and much longer lasting overwhelming periods of utter confusion. Looking back,  you have no idea how you made it. What you do know though, is that you still don’t really get Economics. Sounds familiar?

“Horses for Courses”

The transfer of Economic education at all levels of society, holds countless benefits. These range from better informed personal and career decision making to collective, national economic success. The question however remains: Do we all truly need the same laborious, […]

ALWAYS BETTER.  ALWAYS MORE.

Ever noticed how hastily we reach for the remote control when a Hollywood Sci-Fi blockbuster of yesteryear comes up?  Yet not too long ago, we were captivated by those same scary movie monster characters, green screen technology and amazing special effects.

Sadly today, with that initial level of fascination now irretrievably lost, those monster masks seem awkwardly amateurish, the special effects dismally substandard. Our indulging in the ever-advancing art of computer generated imagery, is leading us on to the subsequent constant demand for Better and More. Which in turn results in the obvious constant supply of Better […]

Economics 101 for Everyone

WE’RE  ALL  HUMAN

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re human. And humans possess the curious ability to, quite naturally, revert to ostrich behaviour. From time to time we all experience that overwhelming urge of mental self -preservation, a desperate attempt to escape the noise, visuals and basically all knowledge of the threat that surrounds us . We just desperately hope that all danger would be gone by the time we’re forced to surface for air.

Now, this ostrich behaviour typically occurs a while after we, the people, had gone to the voting polls. Often forced to casting our precious votes and […]

A DONE DEAL, IS IT?

Oh, that upcoming job interview… Equally exciting and terrifying. That hope of something better on the horizon is spurring you on, arriving early, neat as a pin, proudly armed with an impressive portfolio of evidence containing academic qualifications, skill and experience.

You did your homework, researched the company history, studied the position on offer and you are – pardon you for saying so yourself – nothing short of rather presentable, with just the right amount of natural charm and humble confidence. What could possibly go wrong? Sounds familiar? Probably YES. Or at least up to now.

THE VALUE OF A PERSON

“ Your Value doesn’t decrease

based on someone’s inability to see your Worth”

And so technology entered our lives. Initially we were mesmerized, feverishly following the magic flute of promise and potential with star struck eyes peeled for new horizons. A new world has dawned and so the rush to get there first. Technology  brought about countless previously inconceivable opportunities and inventions – but alas also the reaffirmation of an  invaluable truth: Beware the monster you feed, as it will grow…

Globalization, ever increasing competition, accumulating regulation, compliance controls, risk management and many more internal and external business […]

“Here’s to the Crazy Ones…”

|0 Comments

Perhaps the most ‘logical’ thing about the first typewriter patented back in 1714, was a keyboard with keys nicely positioned in alphabetical order in two rows. Sadly however, when certain commonly used key combinations were hit right after the other, the keys would jam and eventually so, did the dream of inventor Henry Mills.

It was not until 1872 when the familiar QWERTY letter arrangement was designed and successfully patented by Christopher Sholes. The purpose of this design was to prevent mechanical jams and as the typewriter with the QWERTY keyboard rose in popularity, people stopped complaining about the weird arrangement […]
