South Africa. The world's leading economy ?

Ok, ok. Sometimes even the best of humanity (ie : me, Reon Kadena and Gordan Ramsay) are too busy for the publics insatiable need for our wisdom. So for the interim I'll borrow more from http://www.sagoodnews.com/ until they get sick of me and ask me to stop.

The good news is I'm working on something so awesome you'll shit your brooks when all is done. Perpare to retred your faces, because they're about to be foot stomped hard ! Soon my friends...soon.


For now....


Since the end of apartheid South Africa has become a world economic powerhouse. But how are the country's businesses placed to deal with the global recession? asks CNBC European Business.

Time was, not long ago, when South Africa was a pariah, isolated from the world and cut off from international sport, theatre, music and business. Fifteen years into its new era of democracy, it is back in the fold of the international community. The same is true for the country's role in the wider business world. Multinational investors are back; but more and more, South Africa is becoming a net exporter of its own companies.

According to African Business magazine, 15 out of the top 16 companies on the continent are South African, as are 54 out of the top 90. And the companies in the former apartheid state are flexing their muscles and finding new markets in Africa and across the world.

"South Africa is probably the leading economy in the world," says Dr Martyn Davies, chief executive of Frontier Advisory, a research and strategy company working in frontier and emerging markets and director of the Centre for Chinese Studies at Stellenbosch University.

"No other country of our size and economic ranking has produced as many globally successful Fortune 500 companies as we have. The only comparable country is South Korea. There is a phenomenal ability for South African companies to grow and go global from South Africa.

No other comparably sized emerging market has been able to succeed in doing that; not even the Chinese, not even the Indians."

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

....and now for something completely different.

Hedgehogs, why can't they just share the fucking hedge.

Now, did you know that 9 out of 10 Matricucunts from 2008 passed standard grade maths. Yes folks, that's 66% and I was one of them. It's no wonder our economy continues to grow at 1000% per quarter. That's something for all those damned expats to think about while I sip my strawberry dacarie under another stunning African sunset, a Boer and a ANCYL spokes person fornicating at the bottom of the garden and Bok van Blerk singing Umshini Wami streaming direct from my cheap, yet stable, high-speed Internet connection.

Oh, sorry about all that. I was busy with my other better comment so I thought I would feed you a load of old tosh in the meanwhile. I'm sure you will lap it up like you have been doing for the last couple of weeks.

Right, where is that wizard?

Are you seriously one of these people who thinks the South African media candy coats the news ? Please ! If anything we have one of the most cynical sensationalistic conservative alarmist media's in the world.

Why do anything ? It's to their own detriment of their "cause". Makes rational people roll their eyes and saw "aaaaah...rednecks!" Hate will eat itself.

No , no..even though they don't allow freedom of speech, I think we got to protect it. I think 99.9% of South Africans coming on that site for the first time get a very good example and warning of how not to become. It a stupid shitty site but it serves a purpose.

i have 2 questions for the wise ou rooster

question 1

are these numbers true

http://www.businessday.co.za/articles/Content.aspx?id=79419

report showed that white men represented 61% of top management level, enjoyed 48% of all recruitment and made up 44.7% of all employees promoted to this level.



At the top management level black men represented 9.8%, enjoyed 12.6% of all recruitment and made up 12.7% of all employees promoted to this level.



Representation of people with disabilities at all levels and in both private and public sectors dropped from 1% over the previous years to 0.7%.

if so seems that manybe whites arnt struggling as mcuh as sites like zasucks say cause of affirmitve action and bee

next questions sites like za sucks
say this statement is proof of uhuru

want to warn them that the revolution will be a revolution of all black people. I am as angry as I was. I have not calmed down a bit. If we want to unite the people of this country this is the route to go,” he said.

“You better touch our hand whilst we are still giving it,” he said.

it does sounds pretty scary but should we be worried

ok thanks

cept he says

If we want to unite the people of this country this

so i would say he isnt calling uhuru as he says lets unite the people of this country meaning everyone

rooster you have to write a post on that twatface brandon huntley.. 'oh boo hoo hoo i was attacked by blacks and the govt wont do anything about it..but i never went to the police about said attacks'ooh what a suprise nothing was done about it you nob!

he is the ultimate poster boy for whiny-face crybaby closet-racist melodramatic safricans.
On the bright side he is canadas problem now..

Brandon Huntley:unemployed carnival 'attendant' who is now globally famous for being a sensastionalist crybaby,who resorted to conning his way into a canadian passport because he's too unskilled/qualified to be in canada on a real work permit...what to terrible human loss to SA..NOT!
