Media

Every week we reach hundreds of thousands of people through placing arguments in the media in support of the principles we stand for. No other advocacy group in the country does as much as we do to promote support for policies that defend your right, and that of your community, to make decisions about your own life free from counter-productive government interference.

Staan self pa vir jou dade - Rapport

11 August 2019 - Wanneer ons self verantwoordelikheid aanvaar en dit van ander verwag, lê ons die fondament vir verantwoordbaarheid. As ons dit lank genoeg doen, word dit ‘n gewoonte. En dan ‘n kultuur. En dit is die manier waarop nasies slaag.

It is time to say ‘No!’ to the NHI – IRR

9 August 2019 - The 2019 NHI Bill once again kicks the can down the road by failing to provide answers to all the key questions on the proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) system, says the Institute of Race Relations (IRR).

Letter: Land report leaves SA up in the air - Financial Mail

8 August 2019 - More seriously, the cumulative impact of the report’s recommendation would be to expand the powers and discretion for government to take property, directly or indirectly: constitutional amendments, expropriation, land ceilings, ‘punitive’ taxes and so on.

Letter: What business must do - Business Day

7 August 2019 - Step one is to be explicit about what is already implicit in South Africa’s growth and investment numbers; that the business community will find it very difficult to invest in an economy where race-based edicts and threats to property rights combine to put all but the most lucrative projects beyond the risk appetite of many investors.

Check your analysts’ track record – IRR’s top advice - Biznews

5 August 2019 - Consult the balance of any analyst’s opinions, especially written opinion, over time and weigh these against actual events. Every analyst will get a call wrong from time to time. However, the balance of the calls they have made should be shown to broadly align to events as they transpired. For the majority of South African analysts this is not the case.

EWC is still very much on the agenda - Politicsweb

5 August 2019 - Contrary to the bulk of media opinion so far, the panel's proposals prepare the way for steady erosion of the protections of property rights contained in the Constitution, whether urban or rural. They also envisage much more government intervention in the food and agricultural sector. Food shortages are a predictable result.

Letter: Land reform optimism misplaced - Businesslive

2 August 2019 - It is difficult not to notice in the report an intention significantly to expand the latitude of the state to intrude into the property of those subject to it. This is expressed in expropriation without compensation, land ceilings, land taxes, possible restrictions on foreign ownership and so on.

Zille and IRR: What’s inside is exactly what’s on the box - The Citizen

30 July 2019 - Racialist thinking (and the failing race-based policy it delivers) coupled with an orthodoxy of timidity have had the effect over the past quarter of a century of sustaining division and disadvantage, and narrowing the scope for an honest conversation about the choices that need to be made to create that new, fairer, thriving country. South Africa’s future as an open, prosperous society depends on it.
