Should the #Congo  invest in mining or agriculture?
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is a rich land – in theory, at least. Below its soil lie some of the world’s largest reserves of copper, cobalt, tin, tantalum and considerable amounts of gold and diamonds. It is the type of wealth that is measured in billions of Dollars and which has fuelled the …

Die nationalen und internationalen Mittel zur Wirtschaftsförderung sind begrenzt - insofern ist es durchaus eine entweder/oder Frage. Gerade Länder wie die DR Kongo haben zudem sehr eingeschränkte institutionelle Kapazitäten, können kompetent also nur eine sehr eingeschränkte Menge von Politikfeldern entwickeln.

In dem Artikel plädiere ich darum dafür, den (industriellen) Bergbau bis auf weiteres einzustellen und sich auf die Landwirtschaft zu konzentrieren. Dadurch würde auch die Möglichkeit entstehen, in Ruhe die für "sauberen" Bergbau nötigen Institutionen aufzubauen.

Natural resources offer great potential for the development of #Africa, but for that to happen you need a working tax system. How should such a system be designed? Support my proposal on +contributoria and find out:

Work has stopped at some of the world's biggest #platinum mines, as thousands of South African workers have gone on #strike demanding a huge pay rise.

This is the biggest industrial unrest in #SouthAfrica's platinum sector since the 2012 Marikana massacre, when police shot dead 34 striking miners. Unlike 2012, the current strike is legal.

A separate strike in the gold sector also planned for Thursday has been postponed following a court ruling.

I still need some of you to vote for my proposal on +contributoria: https://www.contributoria.com/issue/2014-07/536d00b2226de63b4a000064

If my proposal is successful, I'll treat you to a very interesting story about proper taxation of natural resources in #Africa  in a month. So please support the proposal and share this with your friends!

Sehr schönes Ambiente und der von uns gegessene Salat war ausgezeichnet. Leider vom Preisniveau recht hoch, aber das ist bei einem als "vegan" vermarkteten Café zu erwarten und nicht unbedingt unangemessen. Wir werden sicherlich wiederkommen.
