Interview reflecting on the labour market challenges in South Africa and how the government can encourage job creation. The interview looks at the economic policies that the South African government has pursued and whether they have achieved anything in terms of job creation. The discussion reviews what the government has omitted to do correctly and what is needed to reduce unemployment in South Africa. The discussion also reviews the impact of South African policies aimed at economic transformation and affirmative action, and whether compliance with these policies ought to be relaxed for smaller enterprises.
