Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) said on Wednesday that the annual consumer price inflation (CPI) dropped to 3.7% in October 2019 from a 4.1% registered in September. Stats SA said this was the lowest annual increase since February 2011.

The agency said that on average, prices were unchanged between September and October. “This means that the drop in the annual rate is mainly the result of increases between September and October 2018, moving out of the 12-month window of year-on-year inflation rate.” A notable increase was the R1-per-litre increase in the fuel price which saw the inland 95 octane price increase to R17.08 per litre in September and in October 2019 the price was lower at R16.21. “The main contributors to the annual increase are food and non-alcoholic beverages with an annual inflation of 3.6 %, housing and utilities with an increase of 4.8% and miscellaneous goods and services at 5.7%.”

Mthobisi Mthimkhulu,

Mthobisi Mthimkhulu, Private Clients manager at Allan Gray.Most of us know how to build resilience when it comes to our health and wellness: we aim to eat well, exercise, get enough sleep and manage stress. But when it comes to financial resilience, many South African households fall short. With many of us living from hand to mouth, unexpected expenses, like job losses, medical emergencies and funerals, can lead to extreme financial stress. What can you do to ensure that you are able to bounce back when life throws you a curveball? Mthobisi joins us to talk about building financial resilience.

South Africa’s Public Enterprises minister met unions striking at its state-owned airline on Tuesday in an effort to resolve a strike over wages at the embattled South African Airways (SAA) that has entered its fifth day.

Labour unions are threatening to bring air travel in South Africa to a near standstill to force the loss-making state carrier to meet their demands for higher wages and job security, testing the government’s resolve to get its finances back on track.
Two labour unions representing more than 3 000 workers at South African Airways have been on strike since November 15 after the airline rejected their demand for 8% raises and announced plans to cut 944 posts, forcing the cancellation of most flights. Now the National Union of Metalworkers is engaging its members at other airlines and companies that service the industry on whether they should stage sympathy strikes.

• Medical aids have released their rates for 2020, and there are increases ahead of inflation. While it may not seem that way to the end customer, medical aids are locked in a delicate balancing act to maintain a tolerable level of increase and keep private healthcare affordable.
• Medical inflation is currently sitting at between 10.5% and 12.5%, and yet the average increase in medical aid premiums from the ‘big three’ for 2020 is sitting well below this. Bonitas comes in highest with a median increase of 9.9%, while Discovery’s median increase is 9.5% and Momentum’s is 8.2%.

Smart technologies aren’t just changing our homes; they’re edging their way into their numerous industries and are disrupting the workplace. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the potential to improve productivity, efficiency and accuracy across an organization – but is this entirely beneficial? Many fear that the rise of AI will lead to machines and robots replacing human workers and view this progression in technology as threat rather than a tool to better ourselves.
