About Me:

i am an Agriculture and Biofuels Adviser and has qualified as an agricultural economist from the University of the Free State and the University of Pretoria. I have more than 40 years experience in the agricultural industry.

The expropriation of agricultural land without compensation in South Africa, as part of the destructive political and economic ideology of the ANC-government, could very easily and finally degrade its developing country status.

Growth can only be created in a capitalistic economic system, while socialism and communism can only destroy it as proven by almost all the countries in the world years ago.

Very little white maize is produced in the world because it is consumed only in African countries as a staple food, while the other countries produce yellow maize as animal feed

It is very important that the environment should be cared about and used responsibly, but we will never get away from the fact that the profitability still remains the prerequisite for the sustainability of production.

The application of monetary policy by which the governments of many countries in the world intervene in the economy, using legislation in the form of central banks, is not as important and effective as generally accepted.

Although the Public Protector cannot make recommendations about the amendments to the Constitution to change the role of the Reserve Bank, the bigger problem is that the Constitution is prescriptive about the implementation of monetary policy.

Economic growth is the only way our problems can be addressed but it is a tragedy that this socialist and communist government will never understand how economic growth can be created.

The economic prospects for agriculture will not improve in 2017 if the government and specifically the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries don’t get serious about the sustainable commercial production.

There is only one way to help the economy grow and that is to increase the total compound profitability of the whole economy.

The ANC government has just started writing the last chapter on South Africa as a developing country with the public hearings that are held by the independent legislative panel headed by former president Kgalema Motlanthe.

Statistics South Africa last week announced a sharp decline of 1,2% in the economic growth of the country, as measured by the change in the gross domestic product (GDP), for the first quarter of this year.
