Consumers will soon have a lot more choice when it comes to their mobile phone provider

The first stage in the opening up of one of the continent’s
largest telecoms markets is now complete as Ethiopia’s communications regulator
has revealed that it has received interest from 12 potential buyers of two
licences.

Up to now, state-owned Ethio Telecom has had a monopoly
on the phone and internet business in Ethiopia, which has a population of 109
million.

The introduction of competition could transform the market
and boost the number of mobile subscribers, which stood at 37 million in 2017
according to the World Bank.

In a statement, the Ethiopia Communications Authority (ECA) said
that of the 12 submissions, nine were from telecoms operators, two were from
non-telecoms companies and one was incomplete.

Among those interested are:

  • A joint South African-Kenyan-British bid from Vodafone,
    Vodacom, and Safaricom
  • South African company MTN

Money, Money, Money – Wikipedia

Money, Money, Money” is a song recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA, written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. It was released as a single on 1 November 1976, as the follow-up to “Dancing Queen” (both from the album Arrival). The B-side, “Crazy World”, was recorded in 1974 during the sessions for the album ABBA.

The song (originally titled “Gypsy Girl”)[1] is sung from the viewpoint of a woman who, despite hard work, can barely keep her finances in surplus, and therefore desires a well-off man.

ABBA perform parts of “Money, Money, Money” live in the 1977 film ABBA: The Movie. In the popular musical, Mamma Mia!, the song is sung by the character of Donna as she explains how hard she has to work to keep the taverna in order and her dreams of a better life. In the 2008 film, Meryl

Personal (Jack Reacher, #19) by Lee Child

Nineteenth in the Jack Reacher thriller series revolving around a lone wolf, retired from the army and exploring his America.

Child knows how to pull a reader in. Of course, “knowing” Reacher, Child already has quite a bit set up for us ahead of time, lol. I do love “listening” to Reacher make his conclusions. His questions. His curiosity. His knowledge. Although…I don’t remember Reacher thinking about the So

What Is Money?

Money makes the world go around. Economies rely on the exchange of money for products and services. Economists define money, where it comes from, and what it’s worth. Here are the multifaceted characteristics of money.

Key Takeaways

  • Money is a medium of exchange; it allows people to obtain what they need to live.

  • Fiat money is government-issued currency that is not backed by a physical commodity but by the stability of the issuing government.

Medium of Exchange

Before the development of a medium of exchange—that is, money—people would barter to obtain the goods and services they needed. Two individuals, each possessing some goods the other wanted, would enter into an agreement to trade.

Early forms of bartering, however,
