Outlining key social and economic realities that confront South Africa's new government, this collection of 11 essays by top economic and political analysts debates the problems facing newly elected socialist-leaning president Jacob Zuma. Politically, the widespread world recession has South Africans on both the left and the right calling for change in the economy, and these articles offer 70 key recommendations for bolstering the country's business climate. Controversial issues include interest rates, labor markets, the breakaway COPE party, and how far to the Left a Zuma government can swing, given the economic constraints on their options.
