Abstract:

"This book is an insider's account of the way in which the ANC government addressed the enormous economic task it faced upon taking office and spans the presidency of Nelson Mandela and the first term of President Thabo Mbeki. The book analyses the economic legacy of apartheid and the evolution of the ANC's economic policy. It examines the pressing imperatives of globalisation and trade and industrial policy, the labour market, black economic empowerment, the 'two economies' and measures to address poverty and inequality amongst South Africans."--Jacket.
