I released ASISA data on asset holdings within South African investment funds, spanning 18 years, and the full Quarterly Bulletin. I am experienced with South African labour economics (occupations, earnings, income, and social insurance) and econometrics. My personality is INTJ.

Inspirational Quotes

Matthew 7:1–5  (NRSV)

“Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor's eye.”
