South Africa is in a recession.
What does it mean for you as an investor; should you even care?
Ingram reminded listeners that the news about the recession reflects the reality of months ago.
We knew – even before the news broke – that the economy was weak.
Knowing the exact numbers doesn’t change anything.
Concerns about another downgrade are realistic, but there isn’t anything you can do about it.
You need to look forward, said Ingram.
Economists can get excited about our history.
You should be more concerned about the rand and petrol price as this will impact inflation which will make us poorer, not only through rising costs but also by way of, possibly, rising interest rates.
Wild swings in the rand are worrying, but they tend to overreact and then correct again.
