Merry Xmas and Happy 2011

Dear Friends,

Every economist needs a break to recharge the batteries.
In that vein, in line with previous practice, I will be taking the next four weeks off writing and will resume on 1 January 2011. During this period I hope to meet with readers across the length and breadth of our country.

Huge thanks for all your support this year. Your encouragement and many website visits has kept me coming back to write more.

During period, I trust you will take time to visit all the three websites I have maintained throughout the year:

House of Chiefs - Political, social and economic perspectives on traditional authorities in Zambia
Zambian Economist - Economic perspectives on Zambia
Zambia Elections - All things concerning the 2011 elections

Special thanks to those who have signed up via Facebook and Twitter pages. It has been encouraging to see these mediums become a central part of the websites.

I trust its not too early to wish  you a wonderful Xmas and fantastic 2011!!

May the Lord keep you safe and secure during the festive period.

  6. Why Zambia Must Ban Genetically Modified Maize

    From Amy Goodman's Democracy Now!:

    JEFFREY SMITH: Well, Dr. Arpad Pusztai was actually working on a $3 million grant from the U.K. government to figure out how to test for the safety of GMOs. And what he discovered quite accidentally is that genetically modified organisms are inherently unsafe. Within 10 days, his supposedly harmless GMO potatoes caused massive damage to rats— smaller brains, livers and testicles, partial atrophy of the liver, damaged immune system, etc. And what he discovered was it was the process, the generic process of genetic engineering, that was likely the cause of the problem. He went public with his concerns and was a hero.

    Jeffrey Smith is also the author of Seeds Of Deception

  7. All,

    Many thanks!

    Wishing you all a pleasant new year!

    It promises to fascinating!
