BRICS member nations last month announced the launch of a New Development Bank aimed towards fostering development across the globe, especially within developing nations. Dr. Jack Ledwaba of Ledwaba Chambers joins us to discuss the inner workings of what the BRICS nations hope to be a healthier alternative to the World Bank and the IMF.

In our “Who’s Who in the Corporate Zoo” feature we find out about the job opportunities the National Consumer Tribunal has for young graduates and studying law students to help further their careers.

We take a look at the Falling Walls Lab entrepreneurial competition which is looking for young South African innovators to compete against the world’s best in Berlin.

In our “Business Wrap with Ken Swettenham” we take a deeper look into the African Bank crisis and the recent Moody’s ratings downgrade of the top 4 big banks and what it all realistically means for the man on the ground.

Business Buzz is a weekly business show that enlightens young adults about the financial world, with regular updates and interviews on business topics. This is a business show with a difference as all topics are relevant to students with the aim of simplifying the complex nature of the business world.

The Wits Radio Academy in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation have recently embarked on a co-production endeavour which now sees the Business Buzz being produced and broadcasted on three other radio stations across South Africa, namely Forte FM (Eastern Cape), Rhodes Music Radio (Eastern Cape) and Radio Turf (Limpopo).
