Point­less ar­ti­cle

Finweek English Edition - - Letters - DR SJ MARAIS

THE AR­TI­CLE UN­DER “Some­thing Els” in Fin­week of 8 March has no point, or fails to make its point. I’m sur­prised that such as­sump­tions, that have noth­ing to do with fi­nance and show a lack of in­sight, can be pub­lished.

This kind of jump­ing-on-the-band­wagon writ­ing is out of place in the mag­a­zine. Els has heard some­thing vaguely, but doesn’t know what it’s about. I would like to ask the ed­i­tor to fo­cus on cur­rent fi­nan­cial af­fairs.

Would an ar­ti­cle about how much money the State has lifted out of re­tire­ment funds through tax, which it’s now re­peal­ing with much pub­lic­ity, not have been a bet­ter use of space?
