About the book

Changing the Colour of Capital is a wide-ranging collection of essays addressing many of the basic questions about policy-making and transformation in South Africa today.

The advancement of black South Africans in ownership and management in the private sector is growing steadily. This growth is aided by government scorecards that penalise corporations that fail to include black people in senior positions and management. Some people claim this will lead to a more fair, less racially biased economy. But will this transform the structure of the economy to benefit the people as whole? Changing the Colour of Capital unpacks the fundamental character of the South African Economy, and examines the relationship between the political system and the economy.

Contributors include Trevor Manuel, Rob Davies, Jeremy Cronin, Philisiwe Buthelezi, Adekeye Adebajo, Enver Daniels, Cassius Lubisi and Richard Levin.

Published by David Philip.
