  • Namibia: The Curse of the 'Begging Bowl' Syndrome

    Recently I was going through one of the various forms of social media that I frequent and found a group of individuals discussing how Apple, an American multinational technology company is now sitting on US$203 billion in net cash. During the discussion it was noted that this company, with reserves like this, can actually buy a whole country without even blinking, but according to the participants in the discussion, what else has Apple done to better the the world? After this discussion I asked myself the question, what do those individuals want Apple to do? Would they want Apple to help all those countries in dire need, enhance the education and production levels in all the poverty stricken countries or simply donate a chunk of their profits to Africa, (of which the bulk of that money will end up in personal individual accounts).
