“We can’t return to the crisis before the crisis.”
This week, Grace Blakeley is joined by Rob Davies, Minister for Trade and Industry in the ANC-led South African government from 2009 to 2019.
They discuss the impact of Covid-19 on South Africa and the rest of the continent, the hegemony of the ANC over South African politics, and the challenges of developing an industrial strategy in a highly financialised, unequal and semi-perhipheral economy.
