Why trying to regulate morality is failing the healthcare system in South Africa
You can’t regulate morality – and therein lies the dichotomy. While socialism is admirable in its intention, socialism without a capitalist implementation fails every time. Remember the USSR?
Why do we love to hate our Insurance?
Every time I sit down for a coffee with a colleague, friend or associate, the conversation invariably leads to a mutual distrust and dislike of the insurance industry – ok not every time, but pretty often. I have often wondered why we feel so hard done by when it comes to insurance and the multitude of products that are sold to us as a way to protect us from the perils of daily life – we humans really do battle, how we survive is anyone’s guess.
