Post Lockdown SA: What is the path to economic growth & recovery? | The Podcast

I look at news issues that didn't make it big in mainstream media this week, namely the suspected serial killings in uMthwalume (KZN), and the latest from the murder of Collins Khoza, allegedly at the hands of the SANDF during lockdown.

I then chat to IRR Chief of Staff, John Endres, about the recently released plan to get South Africa's economy back on is feet, and potentially growing at 7% per year.

Is it feasible? How does it differ from the plans by government and labour unions?

Expropriation Without Compensation is BACK! | The Podcast

The socialist policy of EWC is back on track! South African politicians have voted last week to reconvene a parliamentary committee dealing with amendment to Section 25 of the Constitution.

This is the same committee looking to introduce expropriation without compensation, a power that would grant politicians the right to confiscate your property and not compensate you for it.

Join me in conversation with IRR Project Manager, Terence Corrigan.

Budget deficits, higher taxes & an economic downward spiral...Dawie Roodt on the SA economy!

Join my chat with renowned economist, Dawie Roodt, from the Efficient Group.

We discuss the collapse of the South African economy, and look at what the year 2020 will likely mean for South African families.

We look at how the politics of kleptocracy and foolish dreams of socialism are beginning to cripple the economy. Foolish leftist ideology and policies such as EWC, the NHI, prescribed assets etc are eroding liberty and growing economic uncertainty.

Listen to Dawie's predictions concerning predictions on what our growth outlook will be in an economy stifled by Eskom loadshedding, and how our economy will be downgraded to "Junk Status" this year.

Nick Babaya on China (history, economy & governance)

Join me in conversation with IRR analyst, Nick Babaya, as we talk all things China related.
- What is it like to live in China?
- Do the citizens enjoy civil liberties?
- What does it mean to live under a Communist government?

In my weekly rant this week, I give my initial thoughts on the new Israel-Palestine "Deal of the Century". This is the deal any sane Palestinian would take...but can we really say the likes of Hamas, Islamic Jihad & the Mahmoud Abbas, are 'sane'?

On Life, Liberty & Property with Martin van Staden!

Join me in conversation with Free Market Foundation Head of Legal & Research, Martin van Staden.

We talk about what liberty means, and how it translates into economic, social and political aspects of everyday life.

We make the case for why South Africa should become a free society!

Our weak economy, rampant ANC socialism and a troubled DA with Zak Mbhele

I always say #PoliticiansAreTrash...but can Democratic Alliance MP, Zakhele Mbhele, change my mind?

Tune to to the chat as we look at the ailing economy, what MPs like him can do from Parliament, and we discuss how the DA can reclaim lost ground and inspire a come-back in the polls.

I picked Zak's mind on a few other issues, and asked whether Libertarians like him can ever win the battle of ideas from within party-politics?
