What Does South Africa s Pattern of Trade Say About its Labor Markets

This paper examines the factor intensity of South Africa''s trade. The conclusion is that South Africa is revealed though its trade pattern to be capital abundant (relative to labor). Surprisingly, this result holds especially for South Africa''s trade with its high income partners, which should presumably have been more capital-rich than South Africa. Moreover, this revealed capital intensity of South African production was not reversed during the 1990s after the dismantling of apartheid. This favoring of capital use, against the background of high and rising under-utilization of the country''s labor resources, raises questions about the functioning of South Africa''s labor market institutions.

After the multi racial elections in April 1994, South Africa has been set on a new course. For a country emerging from 45 years of apartheid democracy should prove to be the vital first step on the path to sustainability and equitability. There are sure to be pitfalls along the way but the potential offered by long-awaited equality is enormous, and realising that potential is the key to the country's chances of achieving sustainable development. This book analyses the changes which are needed and which might result from the new political culture. It discusses the policy requirements necessary for sustainable development and looks at how the economy, regional integration, land reform, the law, local government, NGOs, health care and AIDs prevention, education, and the media will all be affected, drawing on the experience of other countries in Africa which have witnessed the transition to black majority rule. Accessible to general readers as well as to specialists, it provides a comprehensive overview of the issues involved, and a basis for understanding what prospects the future holds for South Africa.



South Africa and the Logic of Regional Cooperation

In South Africa and the Logic of Regional Cooperation, James J. Hentz addresses changes in South Africa's strategies for regional cooperation and economic development since its transition from apartheid to democracy. Hentz focuses on why the new South African government continues to make regional cooperation a priority and what methods this dominant state uses to pursue its neighborly goals. While providing a synthetic overview of the history of regional cooperation in southern Africa, Hentz considers the logic of cooperation more generally. An extensive discussion of South African politics provides the context for Hentz's exploration of the more widely felt effects of domestic change. Readers interested in the international organization of the politics and economy of southern Africa will find thought-provoking material in this important book.

The essays in this volume explore the interaction between migrant African labour and the cities in which they worked. These urban structures are viewed as attempts by the state and capital to control not only the worker's time, but space as well -- and by extension -- the worker's life. The compounds that enclosed diamond mine workers, or the pass systems that limit where workers may move are researched. The efforts to resist, or at least gain information by workers are documented, as are the relationships of migrants to their often rural kinsmen. Detailed research on specific topics in 19th and 20th century history deal with a number of African countries while taking a fresh critical look at the goals of those in power, the contradictions

To achieve economic growth, South Africa aims at a more outward-oriented economic framework. However, as is discussed in this study, such a transition is made difficult by the constraints created by past industrial policies. Protectionism, the apartheid system, and other regulations have contributed to a generally noncompetitive manufacturing sector, a weak macroeconomic position, and distorted factor markets. Social unrest compounds the problem, as does lack of skill and capital. The role of state interventionism in the new South Africa is also considered.

Discussing the issues at the heart of the land question in South Africa, this reference focuses on how to reverse the dispossessed land of the indigenous peoples and how a large-scale redistribution of land can contribute to the transformation of the economy and the reduction of poverty, both rural, and urban. Debating these issues, this reference discusses a land reform program that made limited headway since the 1994 democracy of the country. The book offers a robust assessment of that program and raises critical questions for its future. The volume includes contributions by leading scholars having wide appeal among activists and students, as well as academics, researchers, and policymakers.

This book is a study of the origins of migratory labour and racial discrimination in South Africa's premier industry, the gold mines of the Witwatersrand. Based upon government records and private business archives, it examines the highly competitive world of mine labour recruiting at the turn of the century and concludes that this regimented labour system was the product not only of the mining companies but also of political pressures and economic needs in South African society. The systerm was remarkable for the hardship it imposed, for the size of the labour force recruited - more than 200,000 low-wage black labourers were delivered annually to the industry's grim, barrack-like compounds - and for the fact that most of the workers were African pastoralists without previous industrial experience. Forced to work in appalling conditions amid much squalor and disease, more than 50,000 miners died on the Witwatersrand in a single decade.

Why Isn t South Africa Growing Faster A Comparative Approach

The purpose of this paper is to examine factors that have constrained South Africa's growth since the end of apartheid by comparing its GDP components and its saving and investment performance with those of 10 faster-growing countries. The study finds that sluggish investment has undermined growth since 1996 and that the underinvestment is in part explained by limited saving. Thus, over the last decade, interactions between investment, saving, and production may have perpetuated slow growth in South Africa.
