  • The Centre for Rising Powers at the Department of Politics and International Relations (Cambridge University, UK) - The Centre for Rising Powers stems from the burgeoning interest in scholarly and policy circles in the emergence of new powers, the so-called BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India, and China). It is the first initiative of its kind however that goes beyond the attention to the immediate cases to focus on the fundamental theoretical and empirical puzzle: how do new powers rise, how might they be accommodated, and what impact do these interactions generate on systemic stability. Its research program is thus just as interested in the threats and opportunities posed by the rise of new powers in the past (such as Germany, Japan, the United States and the former Soviet Union in the 20th century) as the emergence of new powers today (such as India, China, and Brazil).

  • How to become a Freight Broker – Freight brokers help shippers that need to move freight from point A to point B by finding a carrier (trucking company) that will haul the freight for slightly less than the shipper is willing to pay them... thus the term BROKER!  In other words freight brokers, sometimes referred to as load brokers, truck brokers, or transportation brokers, are all middle men that match available shipper freight with available trucks while earning between 10% and 35% profit per shipment. That means brokers typically earn between $100 to $500 per shipment, but I have earned as much as $5,175 per shipment just for finding a truck to haul our customer's freight! Read more

  • Africa Finance Corporation - There is substantial demand for infrastructure assets throughout the African continent. Relative to more developed markets, returns on investment in infrastructure in Africa are actually attractive. Notwithstanding, there have been few successful infrastructure projects.

It was to fill this critical void that the founders of the Africa Finance Corporation (AFC) established the organization in 2007. The corporation brings a wealth of such project structuring experience and risk capital to the market.
