this seems crazy. This could be an economic disaster for SA. They will do anything to help their brothers up north. I am sure the ANC have taken note of how and how not to redistribute wealth. They are waiting for their time to do the same in SA. Do South Africa's whites REALLY believe that there will never be real payback??? Not just AA, BEE etc but real confiscations of land, mines, business etc.

yip. I dont know how the ANC thinks they are going to grow the economy. Cant they see that when the whites, and educated classes leave the country, the money goes with them and investment will slow.

The West no longer sees the ANC as oppressed and in need of help. What sane investor will put millions into SA? I know there is money to be made but it is risky.

well as things are now, making money in Africa is a hit and run scenario, not a long term thing. Long term is to risky with the looming nationalization .. you can loose every thing

they are reporting that thousands of business owners have been arrested today because they have not cut their prices by 50%.

Zim has officially collapsed, and now we can just hope that the Rand can maintain it's levels until we can get out of here.

as Nolan mentioned the other day, there were 56 south african families picked out of the latest pool of wannabe immigrants. That is only to New Zealand. Lots of people are going to other places too. These are skilled people with money. If things do continue this way, I think we all know what this country will be left with in the end

Just to remind everybody - if you think SA is not going the same way as Zim, look HERE then follow the Google link (or just click HERE if you are lazy, then click the PLAY button when it opens)
