It seem generations do not learn from past mistakes.
Take Zimbabwe for example: since the 2000 govt-sponsored land-grab, their Govt tried their very best to create an economic basket-case example, for the purpose for the rest of world's academics to kindly use during economic studies/teachings. Very noble of Zimbabwe to do this. They succeeded, with the economic results clear today, and we all can learn.
Except, SA govt cannot learn...instead, they want to improve on Zimbabwe's basket-case example.
They are not bailing out Eskom. They plunder the taxpayer to bail out BEE schemes that depend on Eskom. Eskom is merely the conduit, the tentacles of the BEE parasite. This parasitic BEE infection turned Luthuli House into a graveyard for zombies. The parasite took over the entire country. Soon it will suck the purchasing power out of the currency and spit out 20 million diseased and starving ANC supporters.
Depends where you live.
If you live in Norway its safe to say its a 99% Hydro powered car.
At my house my EV will be a 70% Solar powered car.
EV's are energy agnostic, they don't care where the power comes from, just keep your source of power CO2 free as much as possible and we will get there sooner or later.
You should 1st pay off your debt. Most of the times your debt interest is at a higher interest rate, so buy paying off higher (guaranteed interest) all you have to beat is the real inflation rate that is 8%. Most times your debt interest (amount) is also higher than your savings interest. Example a bond payment for the first 5 years is almost all interest. So you pay R 10,000 a month and some unscrupulous broker sells you a retirement annuity. You are paying R 10,000 a month and making R 7.55 a month. See the difference?? Oh but I am saving on tax. YES and losing on interest. You need Financial Fitness. Dr. Debt
