@Liberty - Give all pupils school vouchers worth R12 000 each!

9 September 2014 - South Africa should introduce a comprehensive system of educational vouchers to level the educational playing field, says the IRR (Institute of Race Relations). The vouchers – which could be spent solely on education – would be tantamount to a universal bursary system.

@Liberty - The property rights grab

Property rights are under threat from a Constitutional Court decision on mining rights in 2013. This threat has since been compounded by the Promotion and Protection of Investment Bill of 2013, which is soon to be sent to the Cabinet for approval.

@Liberty - From Last Grave at Dimbaza to three tiny graves at Bloemhof

24 June 2014 - By a strange coincidence the Sunday Times on 8th June published an obituary of Nana Mahomo at almost the same time as the South African Institute of Race Relations issued a press release suggesting that affirmative action was partly responsible for the deaths of three babies in Bloemhof.

The 80-20 Report on Local Government

The 80/20 Report on Local Government examines the structure, roles, and responsibilities of local government, tracks the history of local government from the apartheid era into the present, provides hard data on socio-economic circumstances in each of South Africa’s local authorities, ranks all municipalities according to service delivery indicators, provides analysis of the data, and proposes solutions to the problems facing local government.

@Liberty - How to fix the future

13 May 2014 - In the run-up to the election on 7th May many commentators suggested that some of the interventionist legislation recently enacted or promised by the African National Congress (ANC) was populist rather than ideological.

A time traveller's guide to our next ten years

Picture South Africa in ten years: Are the angry poor rising up, seizing land and businesses? Will the ANC survive three more elections? Will the middle classes still braai in suburbia or will we go the way of Zimbabwe?

@Liberty - “Pearls before swine, Johnnyboy’’

3 March 2014 - The first issue of @Liberty, published on 13th February 2014, carried the Institute’s twelve-point plan for a better South Africa. Reaction to a version put up on PoliticsWeb has been mixed. One person said the author of the plan, John Kane-Berman, was casting “pearls before swine, Johnnyboy”.
