Markus Jooste - Steinhoff.

Markus Jooste - I have noticed that I have not updated this blog for more that a year. So before this year ends, let me announce my choice for the year - Markus Jooste. He wiped of billions of Rands from small and large investor's assets. Not nice. For what he did or did not do - he deserves the title poepol of the year. Sis.

The JSE and the FSB

...following a successful appeal lodged by the JSE. The appeal to the Financial Services Board’s (FSB’s) appeal board has resulted in the suspension of ZAR X’s conditional licence, while the FSB’s registrar responsible for securities services explains why he did not entertain the JSE’s objections to ZAR X’s licence application.

(Business Day 5 August 2016) This type of behaviour by a firm to keep the competition at bay is despicable. Fuck what are they afraid of? ...and then the regulator that panders to the big boy. Sorry both become poepolle. But perhaps I as the man in the street just do not understand.

But I did hope that we lived in a market economy, but perhaps I got it wrong...

Gilad Isaacs

Gilad Isaacs admits that people will be put out of a job through a minimum wage - he however through a "model" shows that this will be "negligible"! If I am that person it is not "negligible" it is serious! These guys that sit in their higly paid and often taxpayer sposored positions should not tell others what to do. Least of all employ the power of the state to hurt the most vulnerable in society. There is this guy that can hardly keep a job because his marginal contribution barely covers his marginal contribution and here comes the MWL and puts him out on the street. Well done (Dr!) Isaacs - you have just done your duty as a Socialist - using the force of the state to create a better society. How can we shut you up other than simply calling you and your Utilitaian ilk "poepolle"?

One can read what he says here and I hope you care enough to protect the vulnerable in society to keep their jobs and whatever dignity they have left by resisting the propesd Minimum Wage legislation. What is worse is that GI serves as academic rationalisation to people like this:

Fikile Mbalula

A new award is announced! The Sparrow award. Awarded to individuals that use race to stifle free speech.

The first one goes to our sports minister, who also has on previous occasions used his authority to prevent an open flow of opinions. ...then I guess it is his opinion, but you see he represents the Government and therein lies the rub.
