Abstract:

"Good Capitalism, Bad Capitalism? The role of business in South Africa offers an insightful and balanced account of how the business sector, and particularly organised business, has influenced South Africa's political and socio-economic trajectory over the years, and what it will take for the key actors, politicians and business and labour leaders, to find a new sense of (common) purpose in the post-Zuma era. Recent years have seen organised business in South Africa (represented by organisations such as Business Unity South Africa (BUSA), Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA) and the Black Business Council (BBC)) become fragmented and unnecessarily competitive, with national, provincial and/or local multi-sectoral bodies often having overlapping or conflicting interests and mandates. In the process, the once powerful 'voice of business' has become considerably weaker. What has gone wrong, and can order be re-established?"--Publisher's description.
