- Slowing the population growth rate is vital for South Africa’s economic recovery6.05 MB
The South African economy is currently on its knees, with public policymakers seized with finding solutions to bring about economic recovery. In tinkering with the economic architecture, no effort is being spared to promote GDP growth. This report suggests, however, that GDP growth on its own is incapable of placing the economy on a sustainable growth path. Equal importance has to be afforded to reducing the currently too high population growth rate. One without the other will fail to address the most pressing problem confronting the economy - unsustainably high unemployment.
