GOXI @ Indaba III

I’m thinking CSR day should not been scheduled as the last event of the Indaba. That said “marginal” when the overriding message we’ve heard about CSR is “core.” You see?...

Looking for mind closure

Sometimes you don’t need a panel; all you need is a good beverage.

On Monday, I was intrigued by the silence in response to a question about why companies don’t pay miners in Africa the same wages they pay miners in Australia, given that the respective end products are the same price everywhere, all things being equal.  I had expected a practiced answer to it because in some ways it is a fundamental question. But, I must admit, it’s…

The highlight the 2011 Mining Indaba so far has been the GOXI presentation on Monday morning…I think. OK… maybe I exaggerate slightly: Susan Shabangu, Minister of Mineral Resources for South Africa, has also had a few words to say…and so has Niall Ferguson, Harvard professor and author of The Ascent of Money…and Cynthia Carroll, CEO of Anglo American…and Peter Seligmann, CEO and Chairman of Conservation International…OK, I exaggerate a lot, but that’s the point!

I hesitate to…

Kobina, I'd like to review the DVD of this films about oil. Can I thank you to facilitate that? How do I receive a copy to review?

Gobina, your page is a real goldmine of information! Thanks for contacting me. I've been working for GTZ/GIZ to develop methodologies to analyze the impacts of EITI. In October I'll be in Guinea (Conakry) to support CSOs collaborating with the national EITI secretariat. Some of this work may be of interest to you. Let me know.

Hi Kobina,
My book has just been released. I am wondering if it is approriate to announce it here. It's about poverty but it's more around faith-based practices that lead to poverty.
Please advice.
