  • Fenyes, TI; Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2000)
    Black women workers in South Africa are highly marginalized in that their work has been undervalued and underpaid due to disadvantage and discrimination. They were severely curtailed by legislation that aimed to keep ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2002)
    Despite the increase in the number of women participating in the South African labour market in recent years, little progress has been made in removing wage disparities, eradicating women's marginality in the labour ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, P (2003)
    The article is a detailed exposition of the history of the incorporation of African women into paid work in the South African labour market. The interlocking effects of racism, classism and sexism exposed African women ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2004)
    In recent years the informal sector in both less developed countries and in developing countries, including South Africa, has undergone rapid growth. In South Africa, high levels of unemployment and poverty have pushed ...
  • Akinboade, Oludele Akinloye; Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2004-06)
    Poverty is endemic in Africa where an estimated half of the population lives on less than one dollar per day. Poverty involves more than meagre material well-being and affects a host of other qualities such as dignity, ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2005)
    The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) is a concerted effort by Africa's political leaders to develop a comprehensive and integrated strategic policy framework to raise current levels of socio-economic ...
  • Odhiambo, Nicholas M. (2009)
    This paper examines the dynamic impact of interest rate reforms on economic growth in Zambia—using two models in a stepwise fashion. In the first model, the efficacy of interest rate liberalization is examined by ...
  • Potgieter, Paul (2009-03)
    Using Loeb measure theory, it is possible to construct Lebesgue or even Wiener measure as a hyperfinite counting measure. In this paper I explore an extension of the idea to Hausdorff measure, which yields a hyperfinite ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky; Oosthuizen, A.G (2011-11)
    Most studies concur that climate change could seriously affect the sustainability and well-being of developing countries as they depend directly on climate-sensitive natural resources for their livelihood endeavours. This ...
  • Potgieter, Paul (2012)
    By considering a counting-type argument on Brownian sample paths, we prove a result similar to that of Orey and Taylor on the exact Hausdorff dimension of the rapid points of Brownian motion. Because of the nature of the ...
  • Akanbi, Olusegun Ayodele (CLUTE INSTITUTE, 2013)
    This study empirically examines the pattern of physical infrastructure that would unlock the productive potential of sub-Saharan Africa. The estimations are carried out in a panel of 21 selected sub-Saharan African countries ...
  • Akanbi, Olusegun Ayodele (ELSEVIER, 2013)
    This study develops comprehensive full-sector macro-econometric models for the South African economy with the aim of explaining and providing the macroeconomic effects of fiscal policy changes in the country. The models ...
  • Potgieter, Paul (Springer, 2013)
    Robert Kaufman’s proof that the set of rapid points of Brownian motion has a Fourier dimension equal to its Hausdorff dimension was first published in 1974. A study of the proof of the original paper revealed several gaps ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky; Udjo, Eric (2014)
    Studies confirm that developing countries could be hardest hit by climate change given that they have to contend with extreme poverty levels and harsh geographic conditions. Even Africa will not escape the adversity that ...
  • Udjo, E.O; Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2014)
    The medical expertise to treat to complications arising from pregnancy and childbirth has not spared girls and women in developing countries from dying of such conditions. Developing countries account for the bulk of the ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2014)
    There are estimates of the magnitude of non-communicable disease deaths for less developed countries but little is known about the dynamics in Africa. The continent is undergoing unprecedented growth of the elderly population. ...
  • Lalthapersad-Pillay, Pinky (2015)
    Maternal mortality is a fundamental public health issue and Millennium Development Goal Five deals with an improvement in maternal health. Despite much extensive legislation pertaining to sexual and reproductive health and ...
