Jamaica & Ghana Unite: Possibilities for Investing in Africa
Jamaica & Ghana Unite: Possibilities for Investing in Africa
The West has tried to alter our psyche, to make us believe that Africa is uncivilized and should not be desired. The truth has been discovered. For some of us, we have long known that this was far from being a fact. While for others still, the time has come for us to reclaim what has been robbed from us, that is our longing for identity and a sense of connection to the Motherland. What better way to establish such a connection than through wealth building. Let's contemplate how the capital markets in the Caribbean and the continent of Africa might work together to create wealth for its people. We've invited Ekow Alfedzie, Managing Director, Ghana Stock Exchange, to engage us about what is happening in the Ghanian Market and how we might work together to achieve even greater success. Some of what we looked at were: How many listings are on the Ghana Stock Exchange? Types of listed companies on the Ghana Stock Exchange?

The Data Privacy Act
The Data Privacy Act
The rental of safety deposit boxes at banks and locks on filing cabinets at the office are clear indications that much premium has always been placed on data privacy. And it is not just businesses that need to be concerned about it. Individuals too have much at stake to protect themselves from the risks that can arise when they are breaches. With the onset of the pandemic which has seen a migration of the world to the online space, it has become even more critical for us to be intentional when conducting business particularly in the online space. In 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into full effect after being adopted in 2016. But exactly what is it and what does it do? We will find out this and more in this episode where I have invited Chukwuemeka Cameron, Podcaster/Attorney-at-Law/Founder, Design Privacy to share with.

From Handsome Tree in Demerara, Guyana, to Spur Tree, Jamaica hails a tenacious Jamaican who has had to show his passport and driver's license to convince skeptics of his nationality. He's had several stints in the restaurant business which gave him the confidence and the experience he needed to excel as a business owner. But prior to the success, he's had to move from one relative's house to another while doing cooking demonstrations, staying in motels and reserving left-overs served at breakfast for lunch and dinner, amidst other challenges, none of which has deterred him even when the going got tough.

Why Messages of Hope, Love and Peace are Important to the Development of Our Economy
Why Messages of Hope, Love and Peace are Important to the Development of Our Economy
Up until recent decades when behavioral economics has led to renewed attention to emotion and subjectivity, subjective approaches such as hope, peace and love were not seen as good fits when having dialogue about the economy. Rather, there was much more focus on rationality, self-interests and other objective benchmarks. The effects of hope are positive, ranging from longevity and health to innovation and well-being. But false hopes, disappointment, or possible manipulation of societal hope must be guarded against. Nevertheless, in these atypical times, we need a spirit of hope, love and peace to help us navigate our economic restoration. To help me explore the topic of “Why messages of hope, love and peace are importing the development of our economy,” is Dr Donald Rhodd, Love Changes Life. Some of what we looked at were: In these times when we have important things to focus on like GDP, finance, exchange rates etc to focus on, why is it important to spread messages of hope, love and peace? What is the relationship of these principles to economic development? And lots more.

The Role of Mental Health in Achieving Economic Wellness
The Role of Mental Health in Achieving Economic Wellness
According to psychiatrictimes.com.  "A new Lancet Commission report on mental health said that mental disorders are on the rise in every country in the world and will cost the global economy $16 trillion by 2030...“Mental health is often neglected and underfunded, even though nearly 2 billion people suffer from mental illness every year...As young people face the brunt of the global burden of mental illnesses, the report places great emphasis on experiences in childhood and adolescence, which shape life-long mental health."  Clearly, there is a cost to society when its citizenry isn't whole in all areas of their lives. Dr Donovan Thomas, Founder, Choose Life International joins me today to talk about "The Role of Mental Health in Achieving Economic Wellness."

The Value of Private Sector Support for the Social Sector
The Value of Private Sector Support for the Social Sector
Countries, companies and constituents all aspire to achieve development. Oftentimes, this comes at the expense of putting our future generations at risk. The question is, does development really occur if what we do doesn't leave the world better than we found it? Is it worth it if our actions leave our planet in distress? Does the end justify the means? Over the years, markets and socialism have been looked at as being mutually exclusive concepts.  In recent times, we have seen somewhat of a middle ground taking its place in the traditional market dichotomy. The result is a sweet spot that takes into account social business, impact investing and now even social stock exchanges. Why is it necessary for the private sector to support the social sector?  We will find out in this episode. I have invited the Hon. Thalia Lyn, JSSE Brand Ambassador to talk about  the Value of Private Sector Support for the Social Sector. Some of what we looked at were: You are an Ambassador for the Jamaica Social Stock Exchange, what does this mean? What has Jamaican society given you and why do you feel so strongly about giving back? What are some of the ways in which your company, Island Grill, supports the social sector? And lots more.
