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.

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.
