‘A moment of reckoning’


Adam Habib takes stock of 20 years of democracy and the skewed relationship between economic growth and inequality in South Africa which has “increased every single year for 20 years” despite the fact that South Africa in 2014 is far better country than it was in 1994. Habib argued that in order to address inequality, rising anger and protests South Africa needs:

  1. Better policy-making on employment and jobs for young South Africans
  2. A pact between labour, business and the govermnent to create work, and most important of all,
  3. Real leadership
