= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Corruption, insecurity, unemployment and illiteracy have been cited as Kenya's stumbling blocks to development.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

4. Business: Investing in India
= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

South African investors and exporters are gathered in Johannesburg to discuss export and investment opportunities in India. The seminar has been organised by the Indian embassy and the Gordon Institute of Business Science.

5. Business: Russian Economy
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Moscow - Russia's economic growth is slowing, inflation risks rising, and controversy over the government break-up of the Yukos oil giant is partly to blame, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said Thursday. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

6. Business: South Africans Investing Offshore
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Financial planners are usually a staid bunch. Right now, though, they're pulling out their neatly cropped hair in frustration. Why, they lament, do investors wait until the rand tanks and then rush to invest offshore? It's a predictable pattern. As the rand strengthens, raising local investor sentiment about the motherland, offshore investment products all but wither away. And as the rand weakens, making it more expensive to invest offshore, that's just what South Africans do. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.


Editor's Note: Visit our web pages on the value of investing offshore.

8. Global Trade: Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) Problems
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

It can't be called genocide, because it's not a systematic killing of a national or ethnic group. But Zimbabwean strongman Robert Mugabe's destruction of hundreds of thousands of people's homes, market stalls, and now, subsistence gardens is systematic all right. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

9. Immigration: How can we handle the millions of illegal immigrants coming into the USA?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Amnesty legislation introduced by Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona and Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts purports to "reform" immigration laws and equitably resolve the problem of a massive and continual illegal influx of aliens across U.S. borders.

But the reality is the McCain-Kennedy "reform" would reward lawbreakers for their illegal activity, while holding out a blatantly false promise of stemming future illegal immigration. To read this informative article, go to our NEWS DESK link.
