SA's looting crisis: the consumer fallout

In this edition of the Business Day Spotlight, we talk about the impact of recent unrest in Gauteng and KZN on consumer confidence in SA and the wider economy.

Our host Mudiwa Gavaza is joined by George Kershoff, deputy director at the Bureau of Economic Research (BER), to discuss the issues.

The discussion focuses on the work of the BER; the state of consumer confidence in SA; impact of the recent unrest on consumers; ways in which the unrest will affect SA’s economic recovery; pressures faced by consumers given the lockdowns and continued uncertainty; and an outlook for the country going forward.
