Economy on your Doorstep

Ayabonga Cawe. Published by Tracey McDonald Publishers

Economic ideas have to explain how, why and under what conditions an unequal society develops. More importantly, they have to explain how, as people in the domain of ideas and political action, we can actually change these conditions which, far from being an outcome of divine action, are an outcome of human (in)action and the spaces created or closed by policy. This book goes through and beyond the graphs, margin calls, trading updates, indices and earnings reports to explain how economic ‘actions’ frame the lives of South Africans in a transitional society faced with the challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality.
