Sir, I agree with Michael Power (“ How to end South Africa’s economic crisis”, February 17) that priority should be given on the economy over tackling corruption. Where I beg to differ is that South Africa today is not China in 1979. Creating export processing zones is a good idea but it is long-term in results.
What South Africa needs is a short-term solution to its economic growth problem. Implementing supply-side economic measures based on broad-based low tax rates, spending restraint, trade liberalisation and sound money will bring South Africa back to its 1990s growth rates.
