There is nothing anticompetitive about companies collaborating

11th August 2017 The Competition Commission is worrying me. In fact, it has been worrying me for quite a long time. I now read that it has fined the Natal Witness newspaper because it failed to notify the commission of a merger between it and Mandla-Matla for the provision of printing services. The fine is... 

Now is the time to build a new oil refinery

4th August 2017 The more I look at large projects all over the world, the more I am convinced that they all relied on inspired leadership and a significant element of inspired risk taking. It is well known that, if you put your money into an investment, the financial return is least for the lowest risk. The... 

Desalination will ensure enough water for farming

28th July 2017 Some good news of the past few days has been that South Africa will once again be exporting maize. The reason is that we had good rains over the maize growing areas.  During 2015 and 2016, South Africa imported maize because of drought conditions. This year, the national Crop Estimation Committee... 

I’m all for solar and wind energy, but only for specific situations

21st July 2017 We have just passed midwinter’s day or, more correctly in the southern hemisphere, midwinter’s night, which, for us in the south, is the longest night of the year.

SpaceX’s Mars adventure has my backing

7th July 2017 Every 26 months, a highway to Mars opens up. What happens is that the planets line up in such a way that the configuration is best for spacecraft to travel to Mars. The next window is 2020. The US National Aeronautics Space Administration has announced that it will be sending a spacecraft to Mars... 

The Internet of Energy is a fanciful dream

30th June 2017 Imagine if someone stated that there was a company losing money and asked what can be done about it.  Then someone else came up with an answer and said: “Oh, that is easy; all you have to do is reduce costs until the company makes a profit.”  Then everyone applauds the wise answer, and nobody... 

Thumbs up to govt’s push to support small business

23rd June 2017 There is constant talk of supporting small business. I agree; it is a good thing to do. However, this needs some thought. Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu recently introduced Operation Vula to stimulate entrepreneurs. So, let is ponder some of this. An entrepreneur is somebody who... 

A new refinery would be a sensible move for South Africa’s future

16th June 2017 When she prese Budget Vote in Parliament in May, the Minister of Energy; Mmamoloko Kubayi said that she intended to approach Cabinet with a proposal to build a new oil refinery in South Africa. I think that this is a good idea.  The sooner the better.  The Minister pointed out the danger of... 

Let’s not abuse competition laws simply to put more people into business

9th June 2017 The issue of free competition in business is fundamental to the free market system. Let us remind ourselves of what this means. Let us say there are four hamburger restaurants in a town. A person wanting to buy a burger will decide which one to go to. Let us say that, at this point, each burger...
