Behind every successful man there is a dynamic woman. Madala has Nanima, Bill Clinton had Hilary. Obama has Michelle and Trevor Manuel has Maria Ramos. Trevor Manuel and Maria Ramos tied the knot in Franschoek on 27 December 2008. A match made in financial heaven. I hope Maria will be by his side this time. Last year he mentioned her in his speech. Maria and the boys.. 🙂 How oulik!!!

    The only solution for poverty alleviation – 2.5% can heal the world

    What have the experts predicted for 2009 and budget 2009 links?


    They are so excited about the budget speech, looks like they bought some google ads. They have a dedicated page for the budget speech and they have some predictions and according to them they are the nostradamus of the budget speech.

    Here are some of the things they predict

    • Decrease in the fuel levy due to aid the current economic climate
    • Ad valorem duty to be abolished on refrigerators, freezers, golf balls and video games
    • Retrenchments and restructuring/rationalisations will be under scrutiny


    They seem to think that due to the crisis in the world Trevor will focus on job creation and poverty alleviation. KPMG also mentioned that he may implement a green tax due to the global warming as well. KPMG is having a webcast as well if you want to discuss how the budget will affect your life.
