How to help fix the future by Shifting from BEE to EED

Wednesday, 18 February 2015, Cape Town.

Shifting from BEE to EED

BEE in its many aspects has done little to help the poor. Worse still, it has hurt the truly disadvantaged by promoting wastefulness, crony capitalism, and corruption and curtailing investment, growth, and jobs. To help fix South Africa’s future, we need to shift from BEE to ‘EED’ or ‘Economic Empowerment for the Disadvantaged’.

In this briefing, Anthea Jeffery, author of BEE: Helping or Hurting?, will describe the pros and cons of BEE. She will also outline how EED would work and what its benefits are likely to be.

Date: 18 February 2015

Time: 5.30pm for 6pm, with drinks and snacks before and after

Venue: Friedrich Naumann Foundation, The Pinnacle Building, 18th Floor, Cnr Burg and Castle Streets, Cape Town

Parking arrangements: Picbel Arcade, Strand Street (at your own cost)

RSVP: anthea.simpson@fnst.org by latest Friday, 13 February 2015
