Rebased GDP, World Bank and Nigeria’s realities

First it was the World Bank Country Director, Marie-Francoise Marie-Nelly who claimed las t year that 100 Million Nigerians were living in destitution. Then the Bank President, Dr. Jim Yong Kim while speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in Washington early this month, rated Nigeria among the world’s extremely poor countries.

Dr. Kim’s grouping of Nigeria in the same poverty bracket with the likes of India, China, Bangladesh, DR Congo, Indonesia, Pakistan, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Kenya, was hotly disputed by Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. This is in spite of the fact that the country stands to benefit from the Bank’s policy aimed at ameliorating the economic hardship in those middle-income countries, including a $100 billion increase in lending.

For a country that has worked so hard in the past few years to reposition its economic growth indices — and making appreciable success of it –the World Bank’s exaggeration of the nation’s poverty level was rankling. It rankled mainly because of the premise on which the classification was done– premises that are grossly inaccurate a

Why logo branding is back in fashion

After years in the fashion wilderness, the look-at-me logo is back. Whether it’s on sweatshirts, T-shirts or bags, designers have rediscovered the guilt-free way for consumers to indulge in their fetish for brands: irony, and lots of it.

“The return of logos, especially those used in an ironic manner, makes sense right now,” says Dana Thomas, author of the book Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre. “Young creators, in music as well as in fashion, are turning to the 1980s for inspiration and that was the period when logo mania first hit hard . . . The new take on logos is more romantic, softer, and even humorous – it has all been filtered through the haze of time. We’re all a bit more jaded, a bit more wise. We bought into marketing then; we mock it today.”

Zooey Deschanel dishes about her fashion collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger

Zooey Deschanel is almost bubbling over with excitement: Her show New Girl is a hit, she just released a pop song with Prince, she’s working on a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis, and now she’s sitting in a Tommy Hilfiger store filled with racks of dresses she helped design.

It’s fitting, then, that bubbles are a theme of her new fashion collaboration with Hilfiger, To Tommy From Zooey.

A self-described ‘fabric nerd’ known for her bright blue eyes, long bangs and retro-inspired dresses, Deschanel spent two years working with the designer to create a collection of flirty frocks based on her own personal style.

Even the word fashion is enough to make some men break out in an unsightly rash. Illustration: David Sparshott for the Guardian
