Inspite of the above, study reveals that man is never contented with those fundamental needs, but would start fighting for extras ‘wants’. He would desire to be esteemed, recognised, idolised and praised as pictured in a hierarchy of needs of an American psychologist Abraham Maslow predicated on fulfilling innate human necessities in priority. But the borne of contention becomes in the technique on how those extras or supplements are achieved.

Malawians Abroad; Is this happening in Ireland?

Posted on 05 Dec 2015 at 11:01pm

Few years back, when sons and daughters of Malawi left for Ireland, it was a relief on an economically burdened Malawi and in some cases a relief to psychologically burdened parents whose children were but as good as nothing only to find Ireland a scrap yard for them.

How to Invest on the Malawi Stock Exchange

Posted on 15 Feb 2014 at 10:54pm

So, what do you need to do to put money to work in the warm heart…
