This is an easy one. It is all topical news.
Part 3 - Parameters of Recovery.
1) Countries like Zimbabwe, once the Bread Basket of Africa, should be helped and encouraged to be restored
as great food producing nations. This will help food security for the world, and realization of full potential for that blessed nation. The Rhodesia Falls has a great amount of water, which through irrigation could be put to very good use. As Dr William Runcie is there to meet President Mugabe, I pray to God they discuss with open hearts and minds and formulate plans of support and co-operation that will create good for everybody.
2) I read that Pakistan has reduced the Central Bank rate to 12 percent. Twelve percent and such like rates are too high, more so for emerging market economies. There must be great wisdom in what Ben Franklin has written,
regarding a fair rate being around 6 percent per annum. Six percent seems a fair rate, which would stimulate growth,
encourage saving as well as borrowing, and help the economy grow. I believe Ben Franklin's wisdom should be
considered an ideal benchmark in these matters.
3) If investment starts to flow to the emerging markets, and provided the money is well utilised, it will create wealth and help to realize the full potential - and the potential is of course obviously enormous - of all the economies,
helping to create a worldwide economic Recovery. Where there are huts today, maybe three storey buildings can be built, even a few skyscrapers.
I am a dreamer, I live in hope of a better tomorrow for everybody.
