Ladies and gentlemen, this is stuff that we will only be getting to at the end of this course, but I want to highlight them now, before they disappear into the ether. Acemoglu and Robinson have been writing a few interesting posts about South Africa recently and I think that we should take note:
- Struggling beyond Apartheid.
- The fear of collapse.
- The fear of oligarchy.
- The fear of populism.
- The fear of becoming Columbia.
Not everyone agrees with their analysis. Have a look at Johan Fourie’s views. There are quite a few things to discuss and I am going to book us a political economy guest speaker for the end of September or early October.
