Economists at the IBC conference Reply

DerickAnmarRayond by IBC A number of our colleagues traveled to Swakopmund this week for the 2014 IBC conference. Prof Parosns delivered the key note address on business challenges in a post-Piketty world.

Prof Derick Blaauw and Mrs Anmar Pretorius presented papers at the conference:

  • Anmar’s paper was witht Dr Alain Kabundi of the Reserve Bank with the title Dynamic integration of emerging market bond yields into the global bond market.
  • Derick’s paper was on Factors which enable the existence of waste pickers in South Africa’s informal economy: A systematic review, written in collaboration with
    Prof Rienie Schenk (UWC) and Me Kotie Viljoen (UJ).

Here they are relaxing at the Gala Dinner of the 8th International Business Conference in Swakopmund. The chair of the conference said: “work hard and play hard”. Using that as a guide they reflected on the conference with good food, red wine and good company at their table. Suggestions for the venue for the 9th International Business Conference ranged from Botswana to the Victoria Falls or the Serengeti.
