‘Smart redistribution’ can make life better for everyone (including The Rich)’, by Lorenzo Fioramonti on 702, 01.08.2017

 

GovInn’s Director Lorenzo Fioramonti was interviewed by Radio 702 on ‘Smart redistribution’ can make life better for everyone (including The Rich)’.

It’s hard to have a rational discussion about redistribution in South Africa. So says Lorenzo Fioramonti, Professor of Political Economy and Director of the Centre for the Study of Governance Innovation at University of Pretoria. More often than not, frank debate is tainted by ideology, political score settling and, perhaps, a bit of racism.

If we are serious about building a bright future for South Africa, says Fioramonti, we need to bridge cultural and ideological divides.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Fioramonti for his weekly “The Science Of” feature.
