The aim of this course is to provide course participants with an overview of South Africa's political economy. This will entail an exploration of four dimensions of this endeavour: (a) the way South African economic history has been perceived from a political economy perspective; (b) the dynamics of post-1994 economic policy making and why the challenge of radical economic restructuring has not been adequately addressed; (c) the challenge of state capture from the perspective of the literature on neo-patrimonialism; and (d) potential alternatives, including industrial policy, radical green economy developments, radical economic transformation and Fanonist perspectives on resistance and change.
