Beyond Impotence and Gloom: SA’s Economic and Political Future, and What We Can do About it

Join the GIBS Ethics and Governance Think Tank for a robust conversation about how:

  • SA can restore institutional integrity and defeat the forces of state capture

  • SA’s economy can break out of its no growth trap, averting rating agency risks and winning back business and investor confidence

  • The Finance Minister’s recently unveiled paper, “Towards an Economic Strategy for South Africa”, can really produce the policies that will turn around the country

  • We can overcome the crisis laid bare by the brutal and tragic events of the last couple of weeks

  • Ethics and values can play a pivotal role in shaping these outcomes

Speakers confirmed to date:

Cas Coovadia, managing director of The Banking Association South Africa (BASA).

Busisiwe Mavuso, CEO, BLSA (Business Leadership South Africa)

Colin Coleman, CEO, Goldman Sachs Sub Saharan Africa; and

Thandeka Gqubule, economics editor of the SABC
