Added Value?

Guyana’s Biggest Challenge to Adding Value: Past, Current & Future Brain Drain. An inventory of Guyana’s varied resources will surely result in us being one of the wealthiest countries per capita, at least on paper. We know that unlocking this wealth requires adding value to our national industries and diversification into more attractive investment opportunities. […]

Mala Culture

Could it be that we spoil our public servants? From the top dog to the front line rep, we neglect to be demanding, critical and to expect more. For my colleagues who have chosen public service, kudos to you. Similar to the way we hope that doctors should ideally choose the health of humanity and […]

Business Success and Failure

Business people take many things into consideration before investing. Among these are the political and economic climate. The most important considerations however still remain a feasible business model, access to finance and an adequate market. While most businesses have no issue with others taking credit for their success, what happens to the 80% that fail […]

National Progress

Many suggestions are proposed for running the country. Some more interesting than others, many are as appeasing as they are illogical. The real solution for intense and sustained development is simple but not easy. Simple because the solution is used by us everyday, not easy, because in many cases it does not benefit those seeking […]

Election-Mania!!!

This election is an academic’s dream. Having a full scale experiment staged that empirically measures the intelligence of the population is a great event.

I’m not legally or politically trained…at least, not yet. I am trained in engineering and business administration. These are areas that both focus achieving solutions in the most efficient and effective way. No popularity or bureaucratic circus show, just results. It still amazes me that a fair amount of the populace chooses their leaders based […]

Guyana’s Private Sector Representatio...

It is frequently said that the private sector is supposed to be the engine of growth in any economy. This should be no different in Guyana. But is it? Is there something wrong with our Engine? The main benefits that a healthy and vibrant private sector contribute to an economy are the payment of taxes […]

I can remember as a young boy witnessing the many political rallies taking place around elections in my hometown of Nickerie. I saw the hype created and always wondered why my family never got caught up in it. My grand father, who i had the privilege of spending a lot of time with, explained our […]
