|Business / Oil Prices Have Quietly Crept Back Over $100 A Barrel by ybase2: 1:31pm On Dec 14, 2011|
In the midst of the news about the EU crisis, it’s worth pointing out that oil prices have quietly crept back over $100 a barrel. West Texas Intermediate is $102 as I write. Brent crude, which many argue is the more important figure, is $111. This is remarkable given how weak the global economic recovery has been.
Also of interest is the fact that the price of crude oil has been trending higher, even while the prices of most other commodities have been drifting lower.

Goldman has a new report out on The BRICs countries after 10 years, and how global markets will continue to evolve.
Remember, the BRICs are Brazil, Russia, India, and China — the four countries identified 10 years ago by Goldman’s Jim O’Neill as being the global growth-drivers of the next generation.
This new report discusses various themes, including the emergence of non-BRIC emerging markets, as well as a general flattening of income equality over the next several years.
Goldman also makes its prediction for what the richest economies will be in the year 2050.
According to the report, China will be far and away the world’s biggest economy, but on a per-capita-GDP basis, it still won’t even be as rich as Mexico.

|Business / Youwin And The Fallacy Of The Businessplan by ybase2: 9:52am On Dec 09, 2011|
When I had begun to cheer federal government, I realized YOUWIN would be blighted by the factors that have been chasing Nigeria and foreign businesses to neighbouring countries. It is just that we have put the cart before the horse.
One of those factors is absent or deteriorating infrastructure. When I say infrastructure, I mean both the soft and hard. From protection of intellectual property issues, red tape and varnishing physical infrastructure, YOUWIN would have to crawl for now. Our business ecosystem is severely challenged by anti-business policies like multiple taxation, insecurity, just a few and government shies away from shoring purchasing power of the consumers who are hit daily by new regulations. And so startups will have to innovate to overcome staggering cost of business maintenance or die like wisp.

|Investment / Foreign Direct Investment, Hitherto Nigeria by ybase2: 10:13am On Dec 07, 2011|
Nigeria is in a hot chase to triple foreign direct investment, FDI which is presently put at $3 billion. The minister of trade and investment Olusegun Aganga has said that we can accomplish this by promoting Nigeria as an attractive destination of investment and quality of life.
Foreign direct investment have gained traction in recent years as a result of the failure of state enterprises and state enterprises’ low productivity which have led to the privatization of these firms, turning them to privately-owned. While in the past, colonized countries and their new independent governments believed that foreign investment, foreign ownership of production, was neocolonialism, a continuation of colonialism in economic form, nationalizing these foreign- owned industry have not yielded the desired fruits.
