Welcome to the last SA Valuer edition for 2018.

Are gaslighters getting your goat

Up until a few weeks ago I was blissfully unaware of the meaning of the term ‘Gaslighter’. This state is quite contrary to the norm actually, as I feel that I am mostly au fait with the English language. When, by chance, I came across the word in an overseas article, I felt momentarily slighted thinking that it meant ‘some sort of lamp utilising gas to illuminate the surroundings’.

Articles of Interest

We have come across a number of interesting industry related articles that may be of interest to SAIV Members. These articles include Top court’s ruling restores rights of landholders violated by mining giants; and 10 questions about expropriation without compensation answered.
