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.

Credit Suisse Group makes a killing in Q3

We reported on Tuesday that Credit Suisse is rethinking bonus structures in the move that probably ensured its global stature. On Thursday it was the results time and the CS Group didn't disappoint,  not at all. The bank made $2.4 billion profit in the three months ending in September. That pleasantly surprised analysts and made everybody happily forget that just a year ago the group reported an almost $1.3 billion loss. What was even more positive was that the group didn't only make  money by trading, but, unlike Goldman Sachs, also through its investment banking team, which would mean that the pace of the recovery for the global economy is picking up. Of course, it could also be a freak occurrence and the CS Group picked up all the investment business Goldman Sachs was too busy to accept. Read more: BusinessWeek
