(Hint: it comes from customers.) Sadly, there's an epidemic going around. The reason most entrepreneurs, wantpreneurs, and side hustlers fail is a lack of customers.

This book examines under which conditions chieftaincies can play a key role in the democratic and decentralization initiatives aiming at increasing Congolese state's legitimacy and efficiency. The author applies to the Congo Dele Olowu's analysis of the four dimensions of decentralization political, economic, administrative and financial. He comes to questioning the decentralization rhetoric in the political leaders' discourse, in light of the legislation that has been actually applied from the colonial period until now. He shows the parallel between the colonial and the post-colonial administration by emphasizing the lack of a real will to decentralize. He mentions, however, some recent noticeable signs of decentralization, particularly in the new constitution of 2006 and laws. They include a constitutional recognition of legal status to the chieftaincies, a share in the national revenue, the elections of local assemblies and accountability of the executive to these assemblies. Those changes still need, of course, to mature both in their design and their implementation. This study explores some ways in which this improvement can be pursued.
This book analyses strategic interactions in the upstream activities of the petroleum industry, using game theoretic technique. The author provides insight into the peculiar nature of competitive behaviour of the oil majors and the revenue destruction effect that ensues from interdependencies between these firms for market share. These arguments are augmented by reference to an illustrative case study demonstrating prisoner's dilemma with reference to exploration efforts, and offers an explanation for the wave of mergers between 1998 to 2005. The role of process technologies such as Seismology, in the industry dynamics referenced and highlighted. The content is suitable for students enrolled in executive management courses in business schools since it provides an excellent real life example of corporate strategies, as well as oil executives and managers. Oil and gas engineers who have an interest in understanding industry dynamics, government "watch dogs", whose responsibility it is to understand industry wide consolidations are likely to find this book valuable.
