Speaking to eNCA’s Sally Burdett about Government’s lack of a growth strategy ahead of the release of the first quarter employment statistics, CDE’s Ann Bernstein argued, “There has been a failure of leadership, when the President of the country says that the unity of his political party is more important than the future of South Africa, a whole lot of very bad consequences have flown from that, and I think that is one of the root causes of South Africa’s problems.”

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