US stands firm over sanctions on 'increasingly repressive' Zimbabwe.

US stands firm over sanctions on 'increasingly repressive' Zimbabwe despite lobbying by Ramaphosa.

The US will not lift sanctions on Zimbabwean entities and individuals, despite the issue being raised by President Cyril Ramaphosa during his visit with US President Joe Biden.
US Ambassador to South Africa Reuben E Brigety said the US did not believe claims that its sanctions had caused Zimbabwe's declining economy.
He told News24 the sanctions were targeted at specific people and entities, and that misinformation was driving the blame for the suffering experienced in Zimbabwe on the US.

SA gets investment grade rating from new rating agency.

South Africa generally has a good credit quality and its default risk currently remains low, according to Sovereign Africa Ratings (SAR).
The agency announced its findings on the country’s creditworthiness on Friday, giving South Africa a BBB long-term and B+ short-term rating, with a stable outlook.
Its views of the country’s sovereign status contradict those of the ‘big three’ – Moody’s Investors Service, S&P Global Ratings and Fitch Ratings – which together account for about 95% of international rating activity, having all been around for over a hundred years

CAREERS CORNER: Are you developing skills that won’t be automated?

The future of work looks grim for many people. A recent study from Forrester estimated that 10% of U.S. jobs would be automated this year, and another from McKinsey estimates that close to half of all U.S. jobs may be automated in the next decade.

The jobs that are likely to be automated are repetitive and routine. They range from reading X-rays (human radiologists may soon have much more limited roles), to truck driving, to stocking a warehouse. While much has been written about the sorts of jobs that are likely to be eliminated, another perspective that has not been examined in as much detail is to ask not which jobs will be eliminated but rather which aspects of surviving jobs will be replaced by machines.

The business of Comic books: Is there enough scope for opportunity for comic artists in the South African market?

It has been over 15 years since the Institute conducted its first study into South Africa’s fastest growing consumer segment.
At the time, the research into the then termed ‘Black Diamonds’ garnered widespread attention as the emergence of a Black middle class was unprecedented due to centuries of economic discrimination and exclusion.
In 2012, the Institute noted this dramatic growth of the Black middle class, which for the first time in South Africa’s modern history, outstripped that of its White Middle Class counterparts. The latest report reflects on its significant and continued rise, the nuanced changes over the years and trends likely to influence and entrench the Black Middle Class as the foremost consumer market into the future.

SARB hikesc interest rates by 75 basis points.

The South African Reserve Bank has hiked interest rates by 75 basis points, taking the repo rate to 6.25% per annum – returning to pre-Covid-19 levels.
The decision on rates was not unanimous, with three members voting for the announced 75 basis point hike, while two members preferred a rate hike of 100 basis points.
The hike is the second consecutive upward rate adjustment of 75 basis points. “The level of the repurchase rate is now closer to the level prevailing before the start of the pandemic,” the bank said. Rates are now at the same levels as January 2020, before hard lockdowns hit the economy.

Giant rate hike looms even as inflation slows.

Worries over unanchored inflation expectations and increased depreciation pressure on the rand will probably see the South African Reserve Bank raise its key rate for a sixth straight meeting, said Sanisha Packirisamy, an economist at Momentum Investments.

Governor Lesetja Kganyago said in an interview September 8 that the central bank must do whatever it takes to ensure price growth is under control and on a downward trajectory toward the 4.5% midpoint of the monetary policy committee’s inflation-targeting range. Inflation has been above 4.5% since April 2021.
