  • The Portuguese striker was signed by the Italian giants in July at a cost of €112 million - the sixth most expensive transfer of all time. Ronaldo is considered one of the world’s most marketable athletes, and in the days following his move, the Turin club had reportedly sold €52m worth of club jerseys. Surely that enormous transfer fee would be paid back in no time?
  • The words “transformation” and “change” are often used interchangeably. Moreover, “transformation”, once considered inspirational, is now viewed suspiciously – a codeword for technology, cost cutting and ending of careers. Conflating these two important concepts blurs what each one can do.
  • The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide a snapshot of current thinking on poverty reduction. One of the goals focuses on improving schools, for example. Others call for better jobs and lower corruption. I want to argue for a solution that touches on all of these problems. Reducing poverty depends on helping poor people manage their money. Bank accounts are one of the best ways to do that.
  • The social sector also suffers from the same issues of inequality that have been reported in other sectors. While social enterprises led by women, people of colour, indigenous people or youth may be contributing significantly to social change, issues such as sexual harassment and assault, racism, sexism, ageism and related issues can negatively impact funding and growth opportunities for their organizations, further contributing to burnout.
  • In short order, Trump has shattered this most unique and successful alliance, questioned the value of NATO and disgraced its leaders. He is keen to tear Europe apart and subject it, along with his United States, to the whims of the West’s harshest enemy, Putin’s Russia.
