Understanding the National Budget
Professor Pundy Pillay ran a workshop with the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) community constituency to teach fundamental economic concepts in order to understand the budget speech delivered by then Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba.
The Nedlac Community Constituency is one of the social partners in the platform of social dialogue in South Africa. The Community Constituency is the representative voice of organised civil society.
In 2019, the School hosted a similiar workshop with media. Odile Mackett presented the workshop to a host of young journalists explaining basic economic concepts, investments and understanding how the budget is put together.
