The Fourth Industrial Revolution – also known as Industry 4.0 or 4IR – is the first Industrial Revolution that South Africa is experiencing as a free and democratic country.
It does not however mean that other economical revolutions did not happen in South Africa and the rest of Africa in the past. I will get to this later.
- Because the demarcation of the summed up area that now is South Africa was colonised in stages, starting with the Cape by the Dutch and later took over by the British, I will call it ‘Project Colonise South Africa.’
- Industrial Revolutions’ dates are estimates – i.e. of when one industrial revolution starts and the other ends, and they serve to capture an era of when significant revolutionary innovations happened in the world. And although different researchers have different dates, they do not vary significantly.

Some time ago, we got an email from SAPPI ordering copies of my second book TOWNSHIP BIZ FASTRACK for their incubatees in their community training centres.
This is how the story gets interesting – and touching for me (not to say the other stories from our clients are any less). At first Sappi bought 10 copies of the book on Amazon to give to its incubatees and to see if it helps in teaching them entrepreneurship. Read more

I first posted this as a Facebook book status. It inspired a series of posts (to come) I will call ‘Soft Economic Absurdist Series.’
I see a lot of people condemning this sort of behavior coloured by this picture. The general sentiment come-rage Read more

One older comedian asked a young comic, “Are you married?” The younger comic replied “no!” Astonished, the older comedian said, “then what do you for aggravation!”
While married people in the world have one another for their daily dosage of aggravation, in South Africa everyone gets it from the government and State Owned Enterprises.
We have an oversupply.
Our government makes sure our daily dosage is well catered: inaccurate to insane water and electricity bills, Nkandla, state capture, etc. Good service delivery on the part of our government!
Even the president gets his daily dosage of aggravation. Read more
“I hate e-tolls, you hate e-tolls, we all hate e-tolls”. We all know who said these famous revolutionary words.
No one wants to be tolled for utilizing a road; especially one which was previously free to use. These people just painted the road darker and made expensive loans on our behalf. Now they expect us to pay for them. What sickness is this? Read more
