Invitation: South Africa does have a good news story - Why does the government hide it?

Despite all the negative economic indicators from growth to high inflation, this country has a lot going for it. South Africa is a very different place to that of 1994 yet perpetual negativity abounds. If we carry on with this current mindset, we risk self-destruction and economic regression.

Background:

Mike Schüssler, owner of Economists dotcoza, an Economic Consultancy, has been extensively quoted in the media over the last two and half decades.

Mike’s innovative research on employment and household issues has earned him much praise. He is themost quoted and endorsed economist in South Africa for his insights from Academia to Analysts the world over.

His innovative approach has led to new economic measurement indices and management tools such as Provincial Barometers and Investment Monitors, the BankservAfrica transaction index and the ABSA SMME Index.

Mike has won the Economist of the Year competition twice; one of only three economists to have won this competition more than once in the past twenty five years.

Note to the editor

The FMF is an independent, non-profit, public benefit organisation, created in 1975 by pro-free market business and civil society national bodies to work for a non-racial, free and prosperous South Africa. As a policy organisation it promotes sound economic policies and the principles of good law. As a think tank it seeks and puts forward solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems: unemployment, poverty, growth, education, health care, electricity supply, and more. The FMF was instrumental in the post-apartheid negotiations and directly influenced the Constitutional Commission to include the property rights clause: a critical cornerstone of economic freedom.

The FMF has a wealth of information in papers, articles and opinion pieces available on the website which can influence the public debate and present alternative policies to the people of South Africa. Please look at our website www.freemarketfoundation.com.
