SORT BY Relevancy
Please, join us this Saturday October 16, 2010 at 8:00am New York Time (14:00 hrs Zambian Time) as Dr. Richard Mbewe discusses why Zambia is not benefitting from the exploding copper prices and the money that is pouring into the country. This should be good news for the people of Zambia, except they’re barely seeing any of it – and sometimes it’s even going to shareholders in the UK. Why? Dr. Mbewe is a former Chief Economist, Business Trainer & Management Consultant and an Adjunct Professor of International Economics & Management based in Warsaw, Poland.
Dr. Mbewe on the 200th show looks at 2010 as an important year in African history:
It's the 125th annivesary of the Partition of Africa - the Berlin Conference of 1884/85.
The 50th annivesary of independence of at least 18 African countries
The 46th annivessary of Zambia's independence. As a 46-year old person, what has Zambia achieved as a nation? Could we have done better? What went wrong?
2. Then the issue of national identity:
Do we value ourselves as Zambians and take pride in what is Zambian?
Why do leaders go to South Africa for medical check-ups when the doctors there are Zambians?
Is this is a queer situation?
Why should we have a foreigner (whitemen, especially) as a coach of the national team when we have our own qualified staff?
Why do banks NOT lend money to indigneous Zambians?
Why is it that privatization means selling out companies to foreign entities that do not have Zambia's interests at heart?
3. What about the local divisions:
Urban vs Rural
the role of tribal ceremonies like Ncwala, Umutomboko, Kuomboka, etc. Do they cement tribal identity while erosing national identity?
Zambia-based vs Diaspora
Dr. Mbewe, a Business Trainer, Management Consultant and Adjunct Professor of International Economics & Management in Poland, talks about Zambia's labour market and its dynamics.
According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), of the three billion people who constitute the labour force globally, more than one billion women and men are either unemployed, underemployed or working poor.
Even though statistics in Zambia show that more than 80% are in one form of employment or another, most of these are either underemployed or classified as unpaid family workers.
"Clearly", says Miniva Chibuye, Coordinator of the Social Conditions Programme at the JCTR, "the creation of decent jobs has not kept up with the increase in labour supply".
Please join us as we talk to Dr. Mbewe, a former Chief Economist in Poland, a day before he leaves for Zambia for a business trip. Dr. Mbewe will discuss Zambia's economic issues and investment opportunities. Then Phinias discusses the possibilities of diaspora voting. Yes, that's right, Zambians in the diaspora may be able to vote in this year's Presidential and General Elections. Tune in to learn more.
Come one, Come all !!! Zambia is on the move as regards to business. The opportunities are abundant but government does not have the funds to finance all the available investment opportunities. This is where private capital comes in. Unfortunately, this capital is mostly foreign - Chinese and some Western Investors. South Africans, Kenyans and Nigerians are on the move in acquiring our country's most teasured resources and most profitable business opportiunities. Soon, we shall have a siutuation where the buildings in our country belong to foreigners while only the roads belong to Zambians. Come and make a change!! It is not all of us who can or must be politicians. We can be businessmen providing jobs and other development opporttunities for our people.
This Saturday and Sunday, I will discuss with you what I saw and what came to my mind. You are welcome with all your queries, even the most candid and undiplomatic!
The World is noting new economic trends that are going to affect all countries of the World. These new trends include (but not limited) to (1) rising food prices which means an increase in inflation. Inflation increase results in tightening monetary policies (increasing interest rates) which in turn dampens economic growth; (2) energy prices are on the rise as the current energy resources based on hydrocarbons are dwindling. On the other hand, the World is looking for new sources of clean and environmentally friendly sources of energy. This has had a negative impact on food production; (3) the key to success in the modern World is access to information especially the use of internet and such services like twitter or facebook. The impact of this is exemplified by the recent unrest in Egypt and the eventual dismissal of the incumbent president. Therefore, it is imperative that people have access to reliable and cheaply information. How is Zambia preapred to handle these new global challenges: how safe is our country in regards to food production? Charcoal is the main source of energy. But is this sustainable? What would be the potential substitutes? Finally, access to information is based on having an educated society. How sustainable and adequate is our educational system?
