Summary:

Living conditions have ameliorated substantially for the bulk of South Africa’s population since the advent of democracy, but the pace of improvement has gradually slowed. Economic growth is currently insufficient to make a dent in widespread unemployment and longstanding inequalities. Public debate is increasingly questioning whether the prevailing economic policy paradigm can deliver results for all citizens.
