The Political Economy of South Africa: From Minerals-Energy Complex to Industrialisation


Democratization in South Africa has been accompanied by continuing & even deepening economic inequalities. Rather than proposing a blueprint for a more equable economic system, this book presents the results & implications of wide-ranging research on the history & current dynamics of the South African economy over the past fifty years. The authors analyze a range of strategic economic trajectories, linking these to the shifting balance of economic & political power, & they set the parameters within which the economic & political debates are conducted.
