    So how did Gigaba do?

    Today Malusi Gigaba gave his Medium Term Budget Policy speech. So how did he do?
    Better than Pravin Gordhan might have done?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Horribly, do not believe a word he speaks either. Nuclear will go ahead.

    Judging by the the performance of my share portfolio in the 24 hours after his speech, not well...

    Maybe you need more Rand hedges

    Upon reflection, he has no problem demonstrating an understanding of the scale of the problem - just seems to be doing nothing to solve the problem!

    At least with Pravin he was jetting around drumming up support and pumping confidence.

    I'm working on it! I have just bought some shares in an AltX listing with 97% USD income. Let's hope the business is solid. (Btw, do we have an active investment/share discussion thread on TFSA, Dave?)

    Re: Gigaba, while I didn't listen to the speech, it appears he's taken the apathetic route to addressing our fiscal issues. Unfortunately for him, and us, the financially savvy (including major ratings agencies) see right through the non-committal phrasing.
