Summary

Co-operatives in finance are mainly referred to as Savings and Credit Co-operative Societies (SACCOs). Their key activity is mobilizing savings and providing credit to their members. The SACCO sector in Kenya is hailed as the largest in Africa and among the top 10 globally with mobilized domestic savings of KES 800 billion, accounting for 33 per cent of national savings. Kenya has more than 22,000 registered co-operatives and SACCOs with approximately 14 million members, employing over 2 million people directly and indirectly.

The Kenya Union of Savings and Credit Co-operatives (KUSCCO) is the voice and advocate for savings and credit cooperatives; it has been at the forefront of efforts to form and develop strong and viable SACCOs. KUSCCO offers its 3,600 SACCO members and other cooperatives financial and technical assistance, tailored to benefit middle and low-income earners both in rural and urban areas.

The report shows how the Business Advocacy Fund made a point of attempting to assess the impact made by cooperative policy and legislation reform. The report reviews the cases where KUSSCO aimed to avert proposals to amend legislation ahead of the adoption of a new national cooperatives' policy.

    Lockdown - THE VIRUS WAS NOT THE...

    There is no going back to the old "normal". What you used to know as "your life" is no more. This rebuilding phase, disguised as a "pandemic", has been well prepared and none of this has to do with a virus or a health hazard.
    
    In 2019, a great reset of the monetary, economic and political system was long overdue. The tension could be felt everywhere. The elite, the "Secret World Government" finally wanted to implement their "New World Order". They were tired of the delusion of free elections, individual rights and self-realization. As long as we were needed as work force they played along, but now that robots and AI are better and faster than us we became dispensable.
    
    However, neither those responsible for the old system nor their puppets in politics and the media were willing to take the blame for a major system crash. They feared the rage of the masses. What they needed was a scapegoat, something or someone to be held responsible for the great reset, a complete redesign of our way of living and for many of us the right for living.
    
    And then the Chinese presented the perfect way out of their dilemma: an enemy that nobody can see or fight or even understand. SARS-COV-2 is a political virus, designed in a lab in China with Western support and knowing. This is a proven fact. This common cold virus did not come unforeseen. There was a clear build-up of events in 2019 that led to the worldwide lockdown with all its consequences, ranging from intelligence reports to Bill Gates' Event 201 to a Climate Emergency in Europe after faked elections.
    
    Even with the easing of lockdown measures in some areas or countries this experiment is far from over. It has just begun. Do you think that politicians or so-called "scientists" and "journalists" will voluntarily renounce their newly gained powers and the attention that they so enjoy?
    
    This is a serious political, social, economical and spiritual crisis. This is as serious as it can get. This is Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's 1984 all combined. This is the ultimate fight "Good" versus "Evil". What do you want this world to be, for yourself and for your descendants: fearful and oppressive or loving and creative? Find out what lies behind it and get ready to act.

    Democracy Incorporated - Managed...

    Democracy is struggling in America — by now this statement is almost cliche. But what if the country is no longer a democracy at all? In Democracy Incorporated, Sheldon Wolin considers the unthinkable: has America unwittingly morphed into a new and strange kind of political hybrid, one where economic and state powers are conjoined and virtually unbridled? Can the nation check its descent into what the author terms "inverted totalitarianism"?  
    Wolin portrays a country where citizens are politically uninterested and submissive - and where elites are eager to keep them that way. At best the nation has become a "managed democracy" in which the public is sheperded, not sovereign. At worst it is a place where corporate power no longer answers to state controls. Wolin makes clear that today's America is in no way morally or politically comparable to totalitarian states like Nazi Germany, yet he warns that unchecked economic power risks verging on total power and has its own unnerving pathologies.  
    Wolin examines the myths and mythmaking that justify today's politics, the quest for an ever-expanding economy, and the perverse attractions of an endless war on terror. He argues passionately that democracy's best hope lies in citizens themselves learning anew to exercise power at the local level.  
    Democracy Incorporated is one of the most worrying diagnoses of America's political ills to emerge in decades. It is sure to be a lightening rod for political debate for years to come.  
    The book is published by Princeton University Press.

    “A hugely important book [with] a compelling vision for ethical global finance that makes current political debates seem petty and thoughtless” (Lawrence H. Summers, former U.S. Treasury Secretary).   According to Bertrand Badré, finance is neither inherently good nor bad. It's just a tool—the most powerful tool on earth. . In Can Finance Save the World?, he describes innovative approaches and financial tools that can help us address many of the world's biggest problems, ranging from climate change to the eradication of poverty to building much-needed infrastructure. Badré details options for creating positive financial regulation and for strengthening international cooperation. He also explains what is working and what needs to change in financing the sustainable development of the world.   This book is rich with practical examples, some developed by Badré himself. For instance, he describes how at the World Bank he devised an innovative way to use insurance, a financial tool rarely considered in international development, to buttress fragile emerging economies against natural disasters and pandemics. Initiatives like these show that, as Badré writes, “when controlled and used intelligently, with benevolence and inventiveness, finance can accomplish great things.”

    How Armies Grow - The Expansion...

    This anthology of historical war studies looks at military expansion from the French Revolution to WWII—and the enduring lessons for today.   In the years after the Cold War, many governments sought to reduce the sizes of their armed forces. Along with this general reduction came a shift in military doctrine away from conventional warfare and toward counterinsurgency operations. But in light of new geopolitical developments, the pendulum is swinging back. Once again, armies are growing in size. Now is the time to look back at the age of total war and the hard-won military lessons about the buildup, composition and use of large formations. It is these lessons from history that this book addresses.   What does history tell us about military expansion? How did armies prepare and train for a major conflict in times of peace? How did the armies ensure that the doctrine and training used in a small army was adequate for a drastically enlarged army in the case of total war? All these questions were as relevant then as they are now.   This anthology analyzes a number of case studies and provides insights into themes and topics that characterized the so-called ‘reconstitution’ of armies in their historical and social contexts.

    The present volume by İhsan Gümüş, an author who, in a situation of persecution and oppression, writes under a pseudonym, is a collection of articles which were published on the website Platform for Peace and Justice in 2017 and 2018. They focus on the political development in Turkey following
    the military action, or attempted coup, on 15 July 2016 and the corruption as well as the human rights abuses against different groups.
    
    No democracy, no constitutional system that is orientated towards the protection of human rights can work ‘without the support of a strong, popular culture of liberty’. The book by İhsan Gümüş has the potential to motivate people who want to live in freedom and want to see others live in freedom to overcome moral obtuseness.
