My project-Please advise of ideas

27 Oct

INTRODUCTION
ACCOUNTABILITY IN ZAMBIA
1. Background
Many governments in developing countries are currently grappling with social and economic problems created by lack of accountability. Zambia has not been spared. Lack of accountability is normally noticeable in many areas of the economy in Zambia.

Accountability is one of the core principles of corporate governance. I recently undertook a research project on accountability in Zambia with ZICA(The Zambia Institute of Chartered Accountants) as a case study. Despite accountability being low on many forum’s agendas, the topic seems to be receiving some good attention from ZICA and its corporating partners such as the World Bank and IMF.

Hi there. Many people find it hard to understand the Efficient Market Hypothesis(EMH) my self included. However a bit of research has opened my mind a bit. I want to share it here. The idea behind the EMH is that the market of securities always reflects available information. There are three prescribed levels of market efficiency. 1 The weak form 2 The semi strong form and 3 The strong form.

Do you have more information? Please leave your comments in the section below.
