We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

Europe’s top banker bears sort of good news

Jean-Claude Trichet, the president of the European Central Bank, claimed on Thursday that the worst is over and the Eurozone economy was out of freefall. Then came the hedging part: the pace of recovery will be gradual and the visibility low. While some of the countries, like Germany and France, Greece, Poland, Portugal and the Czech Republic are already out on positive growth, the performance of some, led by the UK, have dragged the overall economic activity in the zone to negative growth of 0.2%, prompting Trichet to keep the ECB interest rate unchanged at 1%.
