From high profile figures such as Cyril Ramaphosa, Albie Sachs, and Wendy Luhabe to analysts such as Wendy Lucas-Bull, Vuyo Jack, and Itumeleng Mahabane; to practitioners such as Lot Ndlovu, Eric Mafuna, Nolitha Fakude, this title brings together leading South African analysts and practitioners in the most comprehensive analysis of black economic empowerment (BEE) to date. The volume situates black economic empowerment within the longer trajectory of black business history; critically analyses the constitutional and political imperatives for empowerment; and provides policy recommendations for legislative and regulatory clarity. Visions of Black economic empowerment achieves what the debates on empowerment have thus far failed to do, which is to examine the sociological foundations of BEE. Its appeal, however, goes beyond technical discussions of BEE to an examination of the political ecomony of BEE, and the raging debates about capital concentration in a land still characterised by mass poverty and inequality. Read the views of the leading contenders in this debate - from Blade Mzimande of the South African Communist Party to fellow African National Congress heavyweight, Saki Macozoma - and examine potential policy innovations to bridge this divide. Essential for the academic and research community, business practitioners and analysts, and for a public that is hungry for the analytical tools to evaluate the most talked about economic policy of the post-apartheid transition. This rich collection of essays reflect the broad analytical range of tis editors - former cabinet minister and former Reserve Bank Deputy Governor; Professor Gill Marcus has been selected by the Absa Board to be the new chair of Absa Group LImited and Absa Bank Limited, business analysts Khehla Shubane, political commentator and scholar Xolela Mangcu, and former poltical editor and researher, Adrian Hadland.
