Youth unemployment in Nigeria is a ticking "time bomb" despite positive indicators at the macroeconomic level, it was impossible to ignore the high level of inequalities that existed. Such a high level of unemployment, especially youth unemployment, and such a high level of inequality in the country create a social situation that may end in unrest.

You cannot expect to have nice economic development without having the society as a whole following. Unemployment in Nigeria is one of the most… Continue

Nigerians abroad blamed President Jonathan for instability in the country for lack of leadership

This is a depressing time for Nigerians home and abroad who have transcended the barbaric level of this present administration. This is the month we living abroad are too ashamed to hail ourself as Nigerians. My people and the lackluster government that runs the affairs of the country have mortified our conscience appallingly. We have never felt so let down by my own people the way we feel this time with Jonathan. This is the time Nigeria exhibits herself as a nation that lacks respect for… Continue

Can Bernanke Restore Confidence?

Remember that quintessential but awkward schoolyard tradition of picking sides in order to fairly set up battle in your sport of choice? Kickball comes to mind for me, and I confess that as a large lad, I never had to endure the stress of being picked last. In the financial markets today it feels like we're still picking sides on the playground; only now we're battling over degrees of weakness in the economy and whether or not we're heading into another recession or are in one… Continue

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The option to impose one's will on another is an option that position alone wrongly affords all too many individuals. Indeed this option to impose on, rather than work with, this option to impose on without any regard whatsoever for due process, becomes, in the hands of most, a license to harm, if not destroy the careers and lives of others. People do, after all, inexplicably lose their jobs; careers do get gently nudged onto the rocks; professional marginalization does occur; first-rate… Continue
