JOHANNESBURG – In the six months after government issued proposed caps to charges on loans, unsecured credit ballooned by almost 30%, suggesting that lenders were maximising prevailing high interest rates before lower legal limits rained on their parade.

New knowledge in the field of neuroscience shows that what happens during the first 1 000 days of the life of a child largely determines the future of that child.
