New data, new approaches and new evidence: A policy synthesis

No 202, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: The Republic of South Africa faces the imperative of escaping economic stagnation. This paper seeks to synthesize results from a series of research efforts, including but not limited to the work conducted under the UNU-WIDER project on ‘Regional growth and development in Southern Africa’, and consider policy options for escaping economic stagnation. The focus is on South Africa and South African policies yielding relatively quick dividends in terms of growth and taking the rest of the world as given. Four broad implications are presented. These could form part of a concerted effort to escape from South Africa’s long running economic malaise.
