Has Robert Mugabe got this right? He’s approved new laws giving local owners the right to take a majority share of foreign companies operating in Zimbabwe. (51% must belong to black Zimbabweans.) Would you like a similar law in your country?
Nigerians, could this apply to oil? Ghanaian, could this apply to gold or cocoa? Kenyans, could this apply to tea? I could on.
Will such laws boost local wealth, or drive away companies which bring jobs and expertise?
Do you work for a company that operates in Africa? Do you agree with these measures?
And wherever you are, should all companies in your country be under majority local ownership?
Is a complete ignorance of economics and business actually a requirement for working for the organisation? Or is this a happenstance?
