Ann Bernstein, executive director of CDE, appeared on eNCA to discuss the causes of South Africa’s poor economic performance. “One of the big issues holding the country back is that the president and his cabinet are not giving us a frank and instructive diagnosis of why we are in crisis almost everywhere we look,” she said.

This media interview is based on a recent CDE report titled “South Africa’s Anti-Growth Strategy: How poor policy and bad governance are wrecking growth”.
