Professor Vishnu Padayachee from the School of Economic and Business Sciences will present this seminar

This seminar, hosted by the Southern Centre for Inequality Studies at Wits is based on a paper which aims to set out some key alternative macroeconomic policy ideas for further debate and research in the context of the multi-disciplinary approach of the Wits Inequality Project. Padayachee will ask what kind of macroeconomic policy interventions will be essential for growth and employment generation and to a successful struggle against rising income and wealth inequality in South Africa, and elsewhere. His assertion is that unless we have a supportive macroeconomic framework, many other economic and social policy interventions for addressing growth and inequality will likely fail to gain much traction or purchase for budgetary and related reasons.
