CCR seminar: The Global Economic Crisis


This seminar is on in Cape Town. Unfortunately, as I live in Johannesburg I won't be attending. However, if anybody who would like to give me some feedback on the session I would be most interested to hear about it.

The Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR) invites you and members of your organisation to the seminar:

“The Global Economic Crisis: Implications
for South Africa and Africa”

The global economic crisis that started several months ago in the United States has played havoc with financial markets. And though the Minister of Finance, Mr Trevor Manuel, has calmed fears of immediate damage to the South African economy, analysts have warned that the impact will be felt in South Africa and Africa sooner or later. This will be the subject of discussion at this seminar.

  • Professor Melvin Ayogu
    Dean, Faculty of Commerce and Professor of Economics

  • Mr Jorge Maia Economist and Head of Research and Information
    Industrial Development Corporation
  • Prof. Sampie Terreblanche Emeritus Professor of Economics University of Stellenbosch

  1. Damn! I'm up at Wits next week but might make it home in time for the CCR seminar. These evenings are always worthwhile -- if I'm in town I'll be your man on the ground.

  2. Coolness. If you make it to the seminar then that would be great, but if you don't you could also place the project in the hands of a trusted confidante.
