    Lee Middleton in Quartz: ...Outside traditional open-air markets, food in Africa is largely a spin of the non-African globe: Marie biscuits from Dubai, butter from Ireland, rice from Thailand. This reality is reflected in an annual food import bill that is almost double that of the sector’s export earnings ($81 billion vs. $45 billion, according to MD Ramesh of Olam International). The upshot being that the continent is spending some $36 billion a year on products from wheat to cooking oil, tomatoes to canned soup.

Over the next few days, we’re going to hear about mental illness. We’re going to hear about troubled loners. We’ll hear about a young man’s racist fantasies, so outrageous that he would celebrate the apartheid regimes of South Africa and Rhodesia. We’ll hear from family, neighbors and high school friends, and the picture that will emerge is of a young man who was strange, disturbed, sick, abnormal. The message will be that the…

So when my friend Kate Crawford invited me to a daylong “Listening Machine Summit” this past Friday, I could hardly refuse. What’s a listening machine?

    The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs announced today that they had settled their complaint with the developers of “Tidbit”, a prototype piece of software developed by four MIT undergraduates as part of a hackathon. It’s about time. New Jersey made a boneheaded decisions to subpoena these students, and got what they deserved after wasting tens of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money: nothing. Oh, the release from the state makes it sound like they’ve made a major step forward in consumer protection. But it’s worth unpacking what the Tidbit developers did,…

    Gone are the days when wives stayed home with the children while husbands brought home the bacon. In the current global economic crisis, and with ever increasing costs, very few households can afford to survive on one income alone. How do moms (and dads) that need to balance their time with their kids, their responsibilities at home, and their work requirements cope? Through the effective use of technology and the appropriate application of flexibility, that’s how.

This can be hard to imagine or accept. After all, the security breaches we hear about on the news involve big brand names, like Target, Home Depot, Sony Pictures, and Anthem. The fact is, many breaches of smaller firms simply go unreported. There are many  business owners who are still wondering what on earth cyber criminals could want with their company’s computer systems and the data they handle. There are several answers…

  • Counting Africa’s Rural Entrepreneurs

    25 Jun 2015 | 10:36 am
    In recent years there has been a growing interest in small rural business development and entrepreneurship as conduits for accelerating job opportunities – for the youth and for poverty reduction. This holds particularly in Africa, where the youth bulge is challenging policymakers to generate jobs for an additional 170 million people who are expected to enter the labor force between 2010 and 2020 (Fox at al., 2013). Among them, 38 percent are projected to work in household enterprises, amounting to around 65 million people. Studies show that jobs generated in the sectors where the poor work…
  • Higher Salaries Can Worsen Corruption

    Kweku Opoku Agyemang
    23 Jun 2015 | 12:44 pm
    For economists, it is borderline redundant to say that corruption has economic origins—classic and contemporary work has long held the belief that higher salaries are better for corruption. Due to the obvious difficulties of doing real policy reform in developing countries however, researchers and policy makers have seen little evidence that sheds light on this statement; especially in African countries where salaries are often low and where corruption is still a great concern.  
  • Agricultural Input Use in Africa – Revisiting our Meager Evidence Base

    Megan Sheahan
    17 Jun 2015 | 1:13 am
    One of the most common assumptions underlying current policy and development interventions in Sub-Saharan Africa is that the use of all modern agricultural inputs – like chemical fertilizer, improved seed varieties, irrigation, agro-chemicals, and machinery – remains dismally low. But when you examine the evidence underlying this basic claim, it’s easy to feel misled. Most of the well-perpetuated numbers we hear about are from highly aggregated macro-data sources while others are derived from small or purposively chosen samples. Even further, many of the studies that continue to be…
  • Killing the Zombie Statistic: Women Contribute 60-80 Percent of Labor in African Agriculture

    Luc Christiaensen
    11 Jun 2015 | 10:52 am
    How much of the work do women contribute to agriculture in Africa? Over the past decades, “60-80 percent” is the range that has regularly popped up--in celebrity speeches, policy conferences and international publications alike. This is what the Washington Post most recently referred to as a zombie statistic – a figure with little empirical verification that never seems to die out, but resurrects itself repeatedly in discussions and debates. Some forensics suggest that the figure can  be traced back to an undocumented, 1972 quote found in a more general study of women’s contribution…
  • Agriculture in Africa – Telling Facts from Myths

    Luc Christiaensen
    5 Jun 2015 | 10:34 am
    One third of Africa’s food goes lost after it is harvested. Women’s labor contribution in African agriculture is regularly quoted in the range of 60 to 80 percent. Labor is 2 to 4 times more productive outside agriculture.  These are just some of the factoids that shape our thinking about African agriculture and that drive policy. However, the statistical foundations of Africa’s economic growth and poverty reduction narratives are increasingly being questioned. Shantayanan Devarajan, the World Bank’s former Chief Economist for the Africa Region, spoke of “Africa’s…

    Investing in African stocks strikes many US-based investors as impractical at best, and foolhardy at worst. Here are a few reasons why it’s the first place I look for investment bargains. 1. Africa’s where the growth is. African economies hit a speed bump in 2008, but most will be firing on all cylinders again soon. Global demand for commodities, growing consumer appetites, and reduced foreign debt loads bode well for a rapid recovery. The IMF expects 21 sub-Saharan countries to grow by 3.0% or more in 2009. Uganda and Malawi both look to post 6% growth! Meanwhile economists…

Clearly, it was not a war the party was not going to win and many of the leaders baying earlier on for a showdown with the members who played the political chess game as they deemed fit, were somehow ill-advised. Truth is, you can go to a political battle and return with an empty hand. What to do then is to take some lessons from that experience and make necessary…

    Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni is one guy who really needs a vacation right now. His former chief of Intelligence services told us some months back how they have been rigging elections that were allegedly won by the opposition. And only recently his former prime minister, former security minister, and also former secretary general of his ruling party (“super minister” sums it all up nicely) came out and declared his intention to stand against him. But who really knows the whole truth about Mr. Yoweri Museveni? I’m one of the few people who do not even want to know. They tell the joke of the…

Any president who has been in power for 25 years, plus, no doubt feels the same. But the choices for our African presidents, where to go for a vacation, are even less appealing. I know a few who are badly in need of a vacation, some time off from all the hustle and bustle; say 2-3 months? But it won’t happen.

He is the highest ranking member of the National Resistance Movement to openly admit that Uganda’s revolution has been a failure. Reading between the lines Amama Mbabazi in this Youtube video basically is saying that the revolution that brought the NRM to power has failed; and that Museveni has failed the revolution. “Uganda can work,” said Amama Mbabazi.
