Manuel, markets and money : Essays in appraisal

From inside dust jacket:

"How well has Finance Minister Trevor Manuel played the hand which the South African economy has dealt him since 1996? Has there been any other way to play it? How does Manuel rank as a finance minister? What are South Africa's future economic prospects? These are some of the questions this volume seeks to answer.

A group of top economists, financial journalists and political analysts examine Manuel's successes and achievements as finance minister into an economic and political perspective. Manuel's term of office has coincided with major events and developments in the South African economy, which call for an authoritative but readable evaluation.

This study, which will be of absorbing interest to business people, students of the economy and general readers, has as both editor and contributor the well-known economist Professor Raymond Parsons, currently at the University of Pretoria. He is also the author of two previous books, The Mbeki Inheritance: South Africa's Economy 1990-2004 and Parsons' Perspective: Focus on the Economy."
