More about the book!
Professor Raymond Parsons was hosted by Polity SA recently to talk about his new book, a collection of essays by a range of authors titled Polity: Recession, Recovery and Reform: South Africa after Covid-19.
What should South Africa be doing to prepare for the ‘new normal’ after Covid-19?
That is the overarching question that Recession, Recovery and Reform seeks to tackle. The book comprises a fascinating collection of essays by some of South Africa’s top intellectuals and thought leaders.
The full list of essays and their authors are:
- Law and the economy through a social-justice lens (Thuli Madonsela)
- The media and the markets (Lukanyo Mnyanda)
- A jobs policy for greater inclusion (Antony Altbeker and Ann Bernstein)
- Making economic transformation work (Bonang Mohale)
- South Africa’s fiscal crisis: Is there a way back from the brink? (Lumkile Mondi)
- Why does South Africa have inflation targeting? (Dennis Dykes)
- Banking on the future: The banking sector in South Africa (Cas Coovadia)
- The emerging role of business: From outsider to strategic partner (Tanya Cohen)
- A free market for a more prosperous South Africa (Temba Nolutshungu)
- Productivity: The catalyst for competitiveness and sustainable growth (Mthunzi Mdwaba and Mothunye Mothiba)
- Evolution of South Africa’s land-reform process post-1994 (Tinashe Kapuya and Wandile Sihlobo)
- The township economy in post-apartheid South Africa (Fulu Netswera)
- The political economy of giving economic advice (Raymond Parsons)
Recession, Recovery and Reform is a must read for those who are concerned about South Africa’s well-being in these deeply uncertain times and who are willing to believe that a better future is still within our grasp if we make the right choices.
