CNN finding it very amusing to always show poor Africans on inter-
national tv is very frightening. Aren't there middle class or upper class African businesses in Africa? Why do you always exploit the continent ? Come on, there are positive development going on in Africa. This continuing trend of negativity toward Africa has got to stop! How do you think Africa will be develop when all you guys show on national tv are negative stereotypical stories about countries on the continent? There are countries like Liberia, Ghana and many other African countries who have instituted reforms but yet, many transnational companies blatantly refused to invest on the continent. Those foreign direct investment can only happen if the BBC and CNN start to show the reforms that are taking place on the continent. How will westerners feel if Al Jazeera or Press TV start to show the broken down American infrastructure, deadly parts of London on tv? Please be fair for God's sake!!!

I like Richard Quest. I'm pretty much impulsive and irresponsible with money. But after watching and listening to his opinion, and insights about money, i'm changing the ways in spending and saving. Thanks, Richard.

Africa Inc is a great idea! I live in Johannesburg and I am an Investment Banker and the first thing I do when I arrive home is tune into your show particularly for Africa Inc. Keeps me updated on what is happening all around. Given the fast approaching 2010 FIFA event in SA, I believe Africa needs to be foremost on everyone's minds and ensuing Agendas.
