About this title
Arguing that more needs to be done on the economic front if South Africa is to generate sustainable economic growth and at the same time provide employment, eradicate poverty, and reduce inequality, this account seeks to provide new lines of thinking in order to achieve these goals. In a clear and user-friendly way, it looks at the challenges of development, analyzes the current political economy of South Africa, and considers the constraints of the global environment. Written by leading thinkers within the African National Congress (ANC), this book belongs to a series that offers short yet informative introductions to ANC history, politics, and policy.About the Author:
