Sunday, 29 October 2017

Interview about the South African Minister of Finance Gigaba’s 2017/18 Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS). The discussion evaluates the Minister’s ablility to articulate a clear path out of the economic quagmire and spell out a vision for the country to overcome the negative economic impact of political uncertainty. The discussion also looks at whether the Minister has regained market confidence, the imbalance between economic policy and the reality of most South Africans, and whether the country will avoid another credit rating downgrade.
