In The Economist news magazine, Baobab - a blogger, writes about how a beer company has come to aid Africa. Often in the news firms are portrayed as taking advantage of the people they sell to. However, there very existence could potentially mark a significant change in a countries prosperity. We'll talk later on in the semester about how/why firms operate and free market capitalism, but for now I'll leave you with the question - Do you think that this company is being philanthropic by it's venture in Africa? Or, is it simply seeking to profit in a country that is haunted with hunger issues?
