Africa Small Medium Enterprise: SME Growth despite constraints
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are increasingly being recognised as productive drivers of economic growth and development for African countries. For example, it is estimated that SMEs account for 70% of Ghana’s gross domestic product (GDP) and 92% of its businesses.(2) They also make up 91% of formalised businesses in South Africa (3) and 70% of the manufacturing sector in Nigeria.(4)

SMEs not only contribute significantly to the economy but can also serve as an impetus for economic diversification through their development of new and unsaturated sectors of the economy. In addition, innovative and technology-based SMEs can provide an interesting platform for expanding outside of domestic borders, and entering intra-regional and international markets. In view of the increasing emergence of SMEs across sub-Saharan Africa and the significant potential that they hold, it is important to look at what kind of support SM…

Solid Historical Reinforced Concrete Home-1905


Solid Reinforced Concrete Home John Esposito and Dawn Fitzpatrick purchased this home in Irvington, N.Y., for $4.1 million in 2006. Construction on the home was completed in 1905 for retired stock broker Daniel Bacon, who requested the architect use reinforced concrete in the walls and under the floors for his country home. He wanted to avoid the fate of other country homes, which at that time would burn to the ground before a volunteer fire brigade could reach them Detail from the front exterior of the home. In a 1909 edition of Cement Age magazine, architect Oswald Hering described Mr. Bacon's confidence in the structural integrity of the home: 'The owner has announced that he will carry no insurance except on the furnishings, and he has bought his freedom from worry over the possible destruction of his house from fire or general deterioration
