    From How We Made It:Developing Africa’s human capital is critical to the continent’s future growth given it has one of the world’s biggest youth demographics. Although enrollment to schools and higher learning institutions in Africa is rising, the quality of education offered is still low. Employers often complain of half-baked graduates, whilst young people struggle to find jobs. Dubai-based Edulink Consultants recently invested US$3m in a new college in Kenya.

    I was asked by an editor at RBC, one of Russia’s best respected independent news organizations, to offer my thoughts on the Russian/US infowar. It was a great chance to think about Adrian Chen’s provocative tale about Russia’s Internet Research Agency (a topic that Global Voices RuNet Echo has done a terrific job of covering) and broader questions about skepticism, mistrust and who benefits from doubt.

    When you read about Dylann Roof, the man who killed nine black men and women as they prayed, think about the patterns he represents. 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…

    Some of the leading technology businesses were created by young people during their academic years. To operate these businesses they had to sacrifice their academic dreams to pursue their business dreams. These days some students do not have to sacrifice their academic dreams to pursue business dreams as academic institutions are building relationships with incubators and creating them within varsities. In such institutions students learn and practice entrepreneurship whilst they are still at varsity. They don’t have to dropout as entrepreneurship is part of the institutions curriculum…

    The recent outcry by the taxi cab industry misses something more important than just a companies entrance in the market. The governments response to Uber requests for licenses also misses the real point about this development. Uber signals something bigger than just a single company, it reflects a shift in the way the global economy is organized. There’s a creation of new marketplace that is taking place. It’s not just Uber, it’s the economy – the emergence of the platform economy. Companies that combine the characteristics of firms and markets – known as platform companies are…

    Companies are appointing successful Instagrammers, accomplished bloggers, and influential “Twelebs” into significant business decision-making positions. But is this smart? I wish I had coined the term “pseulebrity”. The first time I heard it used was in one of Mike Sharman‘s presentations, and it’s become a staple addition to our conversations about how ordinary people achieve extraordinary fame in relatively short time frames, thanks to social media. An obvious portmanteau of pseudo and celebrity, pseulebrity is equal parts exciting, irritating, and…

  • #AgencyLife – The Big Agency Lie

    Mike
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:19 am
    Let me tell you how advertising agencies work. Agencies, by and large, sell hours. Unless they find a way to productise intellectual property or build a clever piece of proprietary technology, agency businesses scale by adding staff as they add clients. Win a client, hire people. Lose a client, fire people. Agency owners and executives make money by consolidating with or selling to larger agencies or networks. When founders or shareholders exit they leave their organisation without its key creative or strategic leadership, often with catastrophic implications. The cycle repeats itself over…

So far, Piketty’s critics have offered only technical objections to his number crunching without contesting his apocalyptic political…

    Inorganic fertilizer use is claimed to be low in sub-Saharan Africa, but it is unclear whether using higher rates of fertilizer would be profitable. My coauthors and I sought to explore the effect of nitrogen on maize in farms across Nigeria to find out.  To do this, we took advantage of the recently available Living Standards Measurement Study - Integrated Surveys on Agriculture, or LSMS-ISA, a household survey project working to collect up to date agricultural data for the same household over time. ​What did we find?   Low yield response and high transport costs reduce fertilizer…
  • Domestic factors drive maize price volatility in Burkina Faso, not external ones

    Moctar NDiaye
    21 Jul 2015 | 10:24 am
    Food price volatility remains a pressing challenge for many African countries (FAO, IMF, and UNCTAD, 2011).  The vast majority of Africa’s population still derives a substantial share of their income from agriculture and low-income households allocate a large share of their budget to food (often more than 60 percent). As a result, large and unexpected swings in food prices cause substantial losses in welfare, and when adequate coping strategies are absent, it may even trap households permanently into poverty. It should thus not surprise that food price shocks still feature highly among the…
  • Building financial capability in Rwanda

    Douglas Randall
    14 Jul 2015 | 11:16 am
    Rwanda’s level of financial inclusion is fast increasing, propelled forward by ambitious targets and innovative policy and regulatory approaches. The 2008 and 2012 FinScope surveys showed that financial inclusion had doubled from 21 to 42 percent and the 2015 iteration is expected to show continued progress. But with such a large and rapid movement of adults into the formal financial sector, ensuring that the ‘newly banked’ are able to effectively and responsibly select and use financial products is critical.
