Whats an Uchumist?

Uchumi –  is economics in Kiswahili (which is Swahili for non-Kiswahili speakers). Its pronounced ‘oo0-chumi’, now say it faster, ‘oo-chumi’, yes thats right. For lack of a better name, I thought I might as well call my blog the uchumist blog – which is a hybrid word that I have coined and I intend for it to mean “the economist”. I think it is fitting to call this blog-diary of a Tanzanian pseudo-economist, “The Uchumist”.
