Our “Brand New Heavy” for the month of September is emerging markets economist and Daily Maverick columnist Xhanti Payi. We find out what grew his love for economics and how he grew his media profile to be one of the most sought after television, print and radio commentators in the country. His life is testament that you can be great even before you reach the age of 30.

We also take a look at the second quarter growth stats for South Africa’s economy, as well as comment on the recent drop in the petrol price, in our “Business Wrap” with financial adviser Ken Swettenham.
Interested in working for Danone some day? Angela Senosha lets our listeners know how they can get a job at the multinational company, in our “Who’s Who in the Corporate Zoo” feature.
