Africa: a great hope for oil producers but a forgotten continent for global media

Recent media coverage of the social unrest in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya has referred to a "Middle Eastern crisis." However, these important oil producing nations are firmly African.

AMP: selling the leaking boat before it floats?

Old Mutual [OML.L] is reportedly lining up a GBP1.5 billion bid that could put AMP's plans to float its northern hemisphere business on hold.

Back to BASICs for India at Cancun

BHP Billiton: mad dogs and aluminum

It's been a good week for BHP, which also managed to resolve a long-running pollution dispute and gain approval for another oil joint venture. Last year's merger has left the Anglo-Australian company in a strong position to invest in new markets and distance itself from old mistakes. If it carries on as it has, BHP is set for a strong future.
