Good Day, I read in the news about Mercedes Benz’s intention to expand its manufacturing  in South Africa but wary of labour ructions and fractious labour dymanics.  Please explain what fractious labour refers to.  

  NDBS Answer:

Fractious, simply put, mean unruly behavior or difficult to control.  Within this context,  South Africa has experienced unprotected and uncontrolled strikes by union members and such strikes affect company  production hence referred to as fractious labour dynamics by Mercedes Benz.

Dig-out is a word used for removing of something that may stand in the way; in this case dig-out Port refers to building or creating a channel for ship docking and container terminals,  and for that to take place some property must be removed which are next to the sea to make way for the port.

Please Explain to me Inflation in lay man’s term as this word is in everybody’s lips but when one ask exactly the meaning it takes 10 minutes for one to explain and I end up confused.

  NDBS Answer:

A general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.  That is the straight forward explanation.  The money that you have become less in value as instead of buying two items you now get one item.  That is the simplest explanation.
