Southern Africa, with its vast natural resources and relatively skilled workforce, should be a magnet for foreign direct investment (FDI). This, however, is not the case. Indeed, even domestic investment is low, though intra-regional investment, mainly from South Africa and Mauritius is notable. This book analyses investment flows within the region and examines the role of FDI in key industries and the role of the Southern Africa Customs Union (SACU). It concludes that Southern Africa still has to shake off a reputation for instability and high risk and makes some recommendations about how tha

But some in the United States and around the word fear that China’s interest in sub-Saharan Africa could threaten previous efforts to protect human rights and to promote democracy in the region. The New Presence of China in Africa takes on this controversial issue, offering an ove

As interest in South Africa began to rise sharply in the United States in the mid-1980s it became clear that few Americans economists know much about the economies of South Africa and the region. The Economics of Apartheid offers a clear and concise explanation of the regions economies and how it contributes and directs public policy. Though this is not a prescriptive book, it does provide an understanding of the problem of South Africa and the possible consequences of various alternative policies both in South Africa and in the international community. It will also provide policymakers and to
