Abstract:

"In Get South Africa Growing Brian Kantor advances spirited economic arguments for freer markets and less government intervention in the economy. Kantor adds significantly to an understanding of how our economy works and offers a succint review of all the drivers that determine a modern economy's performance as well as the key institutions of a modern economy. Kantor's sound economic insights, enriched by his familiarity with current affairs and developments in the local political milieu and financial markets, make this a key and important contribution to the continuing debate which rages around our failing economy."--Back cover.
