Oh, and people don't think as bad of South Africa as many media sources would lead you to believe.
I just finished a Corporate Finance class for my MBA program, and the teacher was talking about risk adjustments when dealing with various part so the world. Certain places where American businesses might consider doing busines, they have to take things into account like cultural risk, political risk, etc. He put up a map of the world and we talked about how different parts of the world rate in that regard with the business community, from low to medium to high. When it came to the continent of Africa, it was interesting. The middle of Africa is generally assessed by the business community as high-risk, while the North Africa moves into the medium category and the South moves into the low end of medium.
So, media-at-large assessments aside, Trevor, businesses have a decidedly more favorable perspective of SA.
